(Fade to black…..15 Seconds of black; does not count in over all time) / VO: Although the concept of recycling has been prevalent in the United States since the 1970, only recently has the public grasped the importance of being environmentally friendly. In 2002, former vice-president Al Gore began voicing his concern about the climate crisis plaguing planet earth. Since then many businesses, organizations, and towns have taken action to preserve the natural environment.
The Township of West Windsor is supporting the “going green” movement taking place across the globe. Efforts to recycle and reduce energy consumption are evident from the community level to the student level. Recently, the Township was successful in its attempt to install a diesel exhaust system for the West Windsor Firehouse which will limit the amount of toxins released into the air. The action informed citizens in the town about the importance of stopping pollution.
NatSOT: (students talking in recycling
VO: In 2006, a group of students from West Windsor Plainsboro High School South were inspired and approached their principal Charles Rudnick with an idea to recycle paper and bottles in the school.
SOT: (RUDNICK): “What I liked about these guys was that they were enthusiastic and had a lot of kids that were interested. And they worked through the problems which were managing to get all the papers in the classrooms to the recycling bin. “
VO: After overcoming hardships in the organization, the members of the Recycling Club conjured up new goals that they hope to accomplish. Recycling club president Harsh Sinha (SINN-hah) says there are many ways to meet the objectives.
NatSOT: Sounds from the lunch room
SOT: (Sinha): “You know how everyday we use Styrofoam plates for lunch? And we use so many. We throw them out with the food. Just imagine if there was another bin just for that. Plus we decided to recycle ink cartridges. And companies actually pay”
VO: The West Windsor Plainsboro School District is also taking a step to save the environment. In the past year, millions of light bulbs throughout the schools were switched to low wattage energy saving light.
In addition, the district is also hoping to become paperless.
SOT: (RUDNICK): “I have been pushing for electronic report cards so we don’t have to mail report cards home to anybody and even progress reports. We have actually acquired a new software package that can allow us to do that.”
NatSOT: Construction trucks digging, etc.
VO: The idea of going green is even going to affect the building of the new classrooms at West Windsor Plainsboro High School South.
SOT: (RUDNICK): “We have got the appropriate energy saving glass in the windows and light fixtures are again going to have the light bulbs that are environmentally friendly. That was a conscious thing that we did when we proposed the referendum.”
STAND UP: All around the community, individuals are taking pride in helping the environment. Some have installed solar panels on their roofs while others are offering community service hours to pick up litter. Whether or not the actions taken are big or small, the effort each person gives is what is crucial to preserving the planet. And it will take combined awareness, effort and enthusiasm from students, parents, other residents and public officials if West Windsor is ever going to be truly green.
