[GreenYes] Re: Sustainable/Green fundraising ideas?



Our energy folks have been pushing a fundraising concept that has the
students selling CFLs. It's called the Lights for Learning
Fundraiser.

The Blue Sky Guide/Chinook Book developed by Celilo Group Media, Inc.
is one such effort. Think of an ecologically-responsible Happenings
Book and you get the idea.

Editions are currently available for Minneapolis/St. Paul, Portland/
Vancouver and Seattle.

Because the Guide/Book focuses on educating folks about local
environmental issues and also promoting locally-based businesses, one
would have to be developed for a given community. The Minnesota Office
of Environmental Assistance provided a $75,000 matching grant to
develop the Minneapolis/St. Paul version. After the first edition came
out for 2002, the effort became self-sustaining and interest continues
to grow.

In addition to being used as a school fundraiser, the Blue Sky Guide
is sold at natural foods coops and independent bookstores.

We offer our waste-free lunch kits as a school fundraiser. Each one
comes with a book of nutritious lunch ideas, promoting a fresh,
organic, locally grown, plant-based diet. In other words, they're
designed not only to reduce waste, but to improve lunch nutrition as
well. Details can be found atwww.laptoplunches.com/schools.html.
Creating this resource is a great idea. I know so many parents who are
tired of being asked to sell candy and cookie dough.

Let me know if you have any questions about our program.
