Liholi­ho Ele­men­tary School is col­lect­ing the plas­tic cov­ers from water bot­tles, sports drinks and soda con­tain­ers. Those plas­tic bot­tle caps are often times thrown away and they end up in our ocean. Birds bring them back to their nests and feed them to their young. The plas­tic caps also wash up on our shores and break down into tiny pieces of plas­tic and they pol­lute our beau­ti­ful shores.

Accept­ed are caps and lids with the sym­bol 2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE) or 5 (PP). These include caps from drinks, sham­poo, food prod­ucts, deter­gent, med­i­cine, sup­ple-ments, spray cans, tooth­paste and cof­fee cans.

Not accept­ed are met­al, Sty­ro­foam or clear lid cov­ers from drink­ing cups, pumps or sprayers, and any caps that are dirty.

Please rinse them out and bring them to Liholi­ho and we will be hap­py to recy­cle them. Please don’t throw them away. You can send them in with your child and label it: “To: Mrs. John­son” or place them in my mail­box in the school office.

For your infor­ma­tion, we’ve col­lect­ed 135.5 lbs of caps and lids from Jan. — Aug. 2012!  Thank you for pro­tect­ing our pre­cious envi­ron­ment!

- Mrs. John­son

Over a hun­dred school and com­mu­ni­ty vol­un­teers came down yes­ter­day to par­tic­i­pate in our very first Liholi­ho ‘Aina Gar­den Par­ty! Liholi­ho com­mu­ni­ty con­trib­u­tors worked inter­de­pen­dent­ly to build six 4′ x 12’ raised gar­den beds, a green com­post struc­ture, and paint­ed beau­ti­ful signs to label gar­den beds for each grade lev­el. Alto­geth­er, we moved 7,900 pounds of soil! Now we are ready to start plant­i­ng!

Spe­cial thanks to com­mu­ni­ty vol­un­teers from Kokua Hawaii Foun­da­tion, Hands in Help­ing Out (HiHO), 12th Ave. Grill, Hula Grill Waiki­ki, and UH Manoa Mas­ter Gar­den­ers Pro­gram who took time out of their three-day week­end to help with Liholiho’s gar­den pro­gram.

ATTENTION: If you are inter­est­ed in vol­un­teer­ing with our ‘Aina in Schools pro­gram to teach and inspire envi­ron­men­tal stew­ard­ship or child­hood nutri­tion please con­tact Ms. Shimizu, ‘Aina Team Coor­di­na­tor, in the Con­tact Us page using the sub­ject line “Aina in the Schools”.
