Creating a More Sustainable School Through Planting Trees

In a partnership with Tree-Plenish, The Dr. Edward A. Ricci Middle School in North Providence will study the school's carbon footprint and paper usage and calculate how many trees would be needed to create a more sustainable school by growing enough wood to supply the school with paper and mitigate its heating and electricity usage.

Students will work with community sponsors to raise money and plant trees, hoping to plant at least 1 tree per Ricci Middle School pupil.
