EcoAction Garage Sale!
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the Old Gym

EcoAction is hosting a school-wide, student-run garage sale. All proceeds go to Next Generation Scholars and MA sustainability initiatives.
EcoAction hosted an event during GreenFest week to recycle your old electronics! Recycling your electronics is a great way to help the environment by keeping harmful chemicals found in electronics out of landfills. This includes things such as power cords, printers, etc. Learn more here.
The Marin Academy Eco-Council Action team established the MA Green Festival (or GreenFest) in 2008 "to practice what we preach and not only educate the community about being more environmentally friendly, but to take action and demonstrate how to take action in fun ways."
