Ironia Goes Green

Join the Ironia Community and Go Green!

recycle

Support the Ironia School Community as we expand our efforts and reinforce to our children the benefits of “going green.” Help us to reduce, reuse and recycle! Throughout the year the PTO sponsors several green initiatives. The environmentally friendly service learning projects provide the opportunity to teach our children and protect our planet. Won’t you join us?


Cell Phone, iPod, Digital Camera Recycling Program

cell phoneThe Ironia 5th grade class (class of 2014!) will be collecting used hand held electronic devices (cell phones, iPods, digital cameras, etc.) throughout the year. All items will be recycled and help to save space in landfills. The proceeds from the program will benefit the 5th grade class gift to Ironia. A collection container may be found on the stage in the Ironia cafeteria.


Plastic Caps Recycling Program

*Please remember to clean all caps or they will not be accepted and counted in the contest.


"Gently Used" Clothing Drive

All donated items will benefit men, women and children in need. The PTO will earn money for each pound of items that is donated. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Connie Nissel: nissel1@optonline.net or Buffie Hyman: buffie@optonline.net.


Viridian

The Ironia PTO has partnered with Viridian Energy to help provide Green Energy to all of its supporters at a lower price than they are currently paying for "brown" energy. If you currently purchase your electric through JCP&L, PSE&G or ACE, you will save money on your electric bill and make a difference in the environment. For further information, questions or to enroll with Viridian, please visit the Ironia PTO page of the Viridian website. Please note that you must use Ironia PTO as the company name.



  1. We're going green by donating/reusing what we have.
  2. We're providing clothing, toys and household items for families in need.
  3. We're reinforcing the Ironia Golden Rule:  "Treat others the way you wish to be treated".



If you have an idea for a new green project or if you would like to volunteer to help with an existing program, please contact the PTO:  irpto@rtnj.org
