We’re Not Quitting
At the Bensons’ urging, Dade County Public Schools established an ENVIRO-COPS Hotline, (995-COPS) for students to get answers to recycling and environmental questions. ENVIRO-COPS also has its own inter-school mail code (9999-ENVIRO-COPS), making it easy for kids to communicate.
ENVIRO-COPS spearheaded an “Assault on Batteries”. In five days, students collected 6,194 pounds of household batteries. Some were sent to manufacturers with letters pleading for a toxin-free environment.
