SHS Green Team Dishwasher Petition


The Green Team needs your help!!! The Seekonk High School Green team is advocating for a dishwasher to be installed in the school. Currently, the high school is the only school in the district without a dishwasher. Over 50,000 styrofoam trays and plastic utensils are wasted every year at SHS due to the lack of dishwashing. The green team will be making a presentation at the next school committee meeting to make their case. In the meantime, they are asking for your help. The green team is collecting signatures on a virtual petition in order to show the school district that there is student and community support for this initiative. Installing a dishwasher in the high school would drastically reduce the waste generated by the school and also save money in the long run. The Green Team estimates that the dishwasher will have paid for itself within 5-7 years. The dishwasher not only helps save the planet, but also the taxpayers wallet! On top of that, using real dishes and silverware will obviously provide a much more enjoyable dining experience for the hardworking student community. If you agree with this initiative, please sign the Green Team's petition by using the QR code. Simply open the camera app on your phone, point it at the QR code, and click on the link that pops up and complete the petition. If we work together, we can create a sustainable future for our community while saving taxpayer dollars. Go green while saving some green!
