|Curie Planet Patrol members with the 570 pounds of batteries collected at their Jan. 31 recycling.|
In 10 weeks, they collected more than 3,000 juice pouches, part of their Terracycle Pouch Brigade effort. They hosted a recycling event and collected 1,000 plastic bags, 570 lbs. of batteries, 238 light bulbs and 100 printer cartridges.
They're also part of the Disney Planet Challenge, a nationwide effort to encourage middle- and elementary-school students to learn about their local ecosystem. The Planet Challenge aims to teach kids about science and conservation while empowering them to make a positive impact on their communities and planet.
