Image Elementary School’s ‘Green Team’ receives Mariners tickets

Students from Image Elementary School received free Seattle Mariners tickets in recognition of their work to promote waste reduction and resource conservation.

Six students and two teachers representing the school’s “Green Team” attended Sunday’s game against the Florida Marlins at Safeco Field in Seattle. During the game, the Image Green Team received its second level of certification from Washington Green Schools, along with a Washington Green Schools flag.

Image’s Green Team received the free tickets after winning a drawing among eligible Green Schools participants. The Image Green Team is one of only nine Washington schools, and the first elementary school in Clark County, to receive the second-level certification. The team qualified by completing an in-depth waste audit of the garbage generated at the school and by making a series of changes to improve recycling efforts.
