Chalk Circle Change in collaboration with Abraham House hosted a game of Chalk Circle Change today. The students circled over 800 pieces of litter within 15 minutes of game play. This is the all time high so far and should deserve a Guinness World Record.
We hosted a neighborhood clean up after the game and picked up most of the litter within an entire block in the Bronx, NY. The surrounding neighbors thanked us as we removed the waste from their sidewalks.
Later we had an open discussion about where the trash actually ends up ... "in the landfill" one of the students said. We left the students with three simple ways to make a difference for the environment in their everyday lives.
