Recyclebank Green Schools Program awards grants to schools in order to fund environmental projects that empower youth to green their own communities. For every 100 points donated to an accepted school, Recyclebank donates $10 to that school.

Under the guidance of Karen Sue Morton and Mario Nunez, W.J. Bryan Elementary School students will become "Recycling Rangers" and "Composting Commanders" after receiving training from faculty, staff, and some selected community resources. These selected students will then serve as role models for the other children at the school and help increase environmental awareness.
