Welcome to Central's Green Team! (see below for more info)

Check Here for Recent Information! 

Our Walk to School day was a HUGE success! We're so glad so many people decided to join in on this great day! Check out our Photo Album page for some fun pictures of the day! 
We even got mentioned in the Wilmette Beacon

The Green Eggs and Ham group had their first small group meeting of the year! We did our first pop tab collection of the year, (Check out the Pop Tab page for results) we brainstormed some ideas for our group's theme in the upcoming Wilmette Holiday Parade and we chose our first big eco-drive of the year.....

It's a Wandraiser!


We're collecting old and gently used mascara wands to be reused by the Appalachian Wildlife Refuge. The Green Team will clean the wands before shipping them to North Carolina. The Appalachian Wildlife Refuge center will reuse the wands to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of rescued wildlife. Mascara wands are perfect for this job because the bristles are so close together and gentle to use on injured animals. 

Some reminders: 
~This is a drive to reuse something that would normally end up in landfills. Please do not buy new brushes or mascara for this drive. 
~We do not want the actual mascara - just the wands!
~Right now, this will be an open ended drive. Because mascara wands are changed every 3 months, we felt that keeping the drive open would help us collect more wands. 

Drop off your Mascara Wands in the lobby today! 

Wands for Wildlife
