up-cycled into other usable items, and we get money. It's a win-win! 

Pearl Homes

 

Our daily habits and decisions make a difference. Whether you have installed a rain garden or rain barrel, made a pledge to “scoop the poop” or switched to a reusable water bottle and reusable grocery bags, you are helping to bring our waterways back to life, and we would like to recognize your efforts.

 

Virginia Beach residents can become an official Lynnhaven River NOW Pearl Home.

Creation Care — Eco Living Tips

* Reduce what you buy. Reuse when possible. Recycle the rest.

* Remember to take reusable shopping bags to the grocery store or mall

Try reusable produce bags (or go bagless)

* Buy  bulk foods and fill reusable snack bags instead of ziplock baggies

* Choose cloth napkins over disposable paper

 
Recycling Old Batteries

As part of being a Pearl School through Lynnhaven River NOW, the Day School is collecting dead batteries. Any battery will do; even those that do not fit in our container on the stand outside the Day School Office.  There are drop-off centers located within our city, but wouldn't it be easier to simply drop them off here at All Saints'? The Day School thanks you for supporting its efforts!

Oyster Gardening

 Volunteer to steward your own batch of baby oysters. Cages are shaken once weekly to prevent oysters from growing into the cage. Divided once in November...and monitored for crabs and sea squirts... the oysters are returned to Lynnhaven River Now sometime in June to be added to oyster reef replenishment  sanctuaries  to assist with the filtering of our shared watershed.
