Nancy Weil
Nancy is a stay at home mom of three who started her green crusade last fall. Her first project was creating and implementing a composting and recycling program in the SJCC's preschool which hosts 17 classrooms. She did a faculty, family and student education about the importance of caring for our earth. It turned out to be the stepping stone for many MI schools that learned of the program and had her consult for their school.
From the French American School to MIPA, Nancy has presented and educated many teachers and parents about how to reduce, reuse, recycle and compost at the school level. Using the King County Green Schools Program as her template, Nancy's next target was the elementary school, Lakeridge. She implemented a compost/recycling program that reduced their lunchroom trash by 90% and put into practice an education for all of the faculty and it's students. This program then spread to West Mercer Elementary School and is now starting at the High School level. Nancy is currently the lead facilitator on the District's Green team to get the district Level 1 Certified through King County. Nancy worked with the MI Farmers Market in becoming a "Zero Waste" from educational signage for customers to educating the vendors about the importance of reducing their use of plastic purchasing products are compostable or recyclable. Nancy is also a member of the Green Ribbon Commission and is working with them on bringing waste reduction to the city level. She is also the green consult for the Community for Mindful Parents.
