Green Schools Alliance en Earth Calendar for March 30th and 31st <p>Every year, Americans generate 250 million tons of trash - enough to fill a line of garbage trucks that would stretch from the Earth halfway to the moon. Studies have shown that at least 75% of our waste could be recycled or composted. On April 2nd, thousands of students in schools across the country will aim to &quot;recycle right&quot; for four weeks during the <a href="">2012 Green Cup Recycle Challenge</a>, a student-driven recycling competition for grades K-12 sponsored by the <a href="">Green Schools Alliance</a>.
