Tigers Don't Leave Tracks! begins a new school year

Tigers Don't Leave Tracks! - aimed at educating students about sustainability and helping them reduce their use of single-use plastics - is beginning a new year at Sewanee Elementary. Thanks to your support, and to an award from Good Sports Always RecycleTM, Sewanee Elementary now has a custom-made tray slide sorting station to help students sort reusables, recyclables and waste in the cafeteria, and water bottle refill stations in the hallways.

Sewanee Elementary students will continue their sustainability efforts this year with two Litterless Lunch Audits and the ongoing Reusable Bag Project.

Show your support by continuing to bring your reusable bags to local businesses.

Mooney's, The Lemon Fair, Village Wine and Spirits and Monteagle Wine and Spirits are all making donations to the school every time you bring your own bag. 

The Piggly Wiggly is hosting a draw in support of the project. When you bring your own bags to the Pig, write the name of a teacher or a class on the back of your receipt (grade 2, Mrs. Camp's class, Principal's Choice) and put it in the Tigers Don't Leave Tracks! jar at the front of the store. Those receipts will be collected periodically and entered in prize draws. The winning classes will receive sturdy Klean Kanteen water bottles for everyone. Together we can give reusable water bottles to all of the children in the school and help them in their efforts to reduce their use. 

Thank you for supporting Tigers Don't Leave Tracks! and Sewanee Elementary!
