Environment - Global Warming

Grant Ideas

 

Do you have a great idea for a project related to Global Warming? Let us know what it is and we could give you up to $500 to make it happen.

 

Here are examples of other ideas we liked.

 

Educate your town on the energy savings from CFLs.
Buy cases of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) and distribute them to your neighbors with a fact sheet to let the public know how much more energy efficient CFLs are vs. regular incandescent bulbs and how much money they can save over regular bulbs.
Start a 'Green Club' to lead your community in environmental practices.
Take on projects such as:
  • Designing and distributing reusable canvas bags that merchants can give customers in place of single use bags
  • Conducting a school energy audit and making recommendations
  • Organizing a battery recycling program in your community
  • Holding a school-wide (or public) screening of "An Inconvenient Truth"
Begin by holding a fundraiser if necessary to raise awareness and let people contribute.
Convert a car to run on biodiesel fuel.
Work with your Auto-shop teacher to convert a car to run on biodiesel fuel and your Chemistry teacher to develop a biodiesel processor. Plans for both are easily found on the Internet.
Plant trees and beautify your neighborhood.
Take on a tree-planting project to beautify a section of town. Work with the city and a nursery to make a big event that raises the public's awareness of how trees contribute to the fight against global warming.
