Green Team

BSS Green Team Mission Statement

The Green Team’s mission is to create awareness and understanding of environmental issues, and to promote the adoption of responsible practices within the BSS community, both at school and at home. We will encourage our community to engage in practices consistent with sustainable living, including the conservation of resources, waste reduction, recycling, pollution prevention, an increased reliance on renewable resources, and other initiatives designed to help BSS and our larger community to reduce the negative impact we have on our environment.

Our mission is rooted in the Catholic call to stewardship. We believe that all of God’s creation is good, and that as people of faith, we have a responsibility to act as caretakers for our earth. We recognize that each of us is only on the earth for a short time, and thus, we know that we must tend to the gifts we have all been blessed with, so that future generations can enjoy the gifts of creation in the same ways that we are able to.
