Guam - George Washington High School students including 150 'Marine Maniacs' were rewarded for their recycling efforts. Linda Tatreau says the school began recycling in 1994 and has been successful in collecting bags of plastic bottles and aluminum every week.
She explained, "The amazing thing about recycling here at GW is my students get a few points for coming in and participating. The Maniacs right here that you see they do it because they're totally maniacs. but I have a bunch of kids that I don't even know who come every Thursday after school, I'm getting to know them now. But they just come because…it's the right thing to do."
With the $1,400 they received today, Tatreau says the money will fund future marine mania projects and fieldtrips as well as lab supplies.
