These days everyone is trying to be green, but it's hard. How can we help without totally changing everything we do and turning our lives upside down? It seems like fixing the environment is an insurmountable problem, but the Bushwick Green Team is here to tell you that that is not true. In fact, we have partnered with an organization called WE ADD UP that has a very inspiring slogan: "No one can do everything. Everyone can do something." For them, the something that you can do is buy an awesome t-shirt with a customizable environmental theme. This may sound very simple, and it is, but the message these t-shirts hold can and will inspire you and those around you to make changes in their lives to better the environment.

We have a lot great ideas to affect change at the Bushwick Campus and in the community, for example:
- We are building a new garden on the school grounds that will be used as a learning environment as well as a supplement to cafeteria food
- We are working with another garden in the community as well, the Linden-Bushwick Community Garden
- We are starting recycling programs for batteries, cellphones, medicine, paper, etc.
