Go Green With Willard School
Looking to take the next step? Our Green Ambassador crew has the experience to help your school, business or home take your Earth-minded revolution to the next level!
This first video is a reminder to save electricity and get outside to play (one way to reduce pollution!). We have to thank our friends and mentors of Ridgewood High School's club Students for Environmental Action for sharing their Turning Off The Lights Project.
Our school programs were highlighted on the CBS Early Show!

Follow These Simple Steps to Make Your Own Natural Hand Sanitizer
1. In a small bowl, put one drop each of the following essential oils: cinnamon, clove, rosemary and eucalyptus.
2. Add five drops of lemon essential oil. Mix in 1 ounce of water and 1/2 teaspoon aloe vera gel (available at pharmacies and health food stores).
3. Store in an airtight container or a small travel-size bottle.
Note: Essential oils can be purchased online or at health food stores.
Alternative: Instead of purchasing the 5 separate essential oils, use 5 drops of the "Thieves" blend from Young Living Essential Oils (youngliving.com).
