2017 Winning Schools!


Congratulations to the top pledge earning schools in the 2017 Great Schools Clean Streams Pledge Drive!


Thank you so much for doing your part this year and pledging to "can the grease" pledge on behalf of the school you selected. The pledge drive is now closed and after screening for irregularities and duplicate email addresses, we collected 6,021 pledges!

How much fat, oil, and grease does that keep out of the sewers? A lot! Using USDA numbers, we estimate that 6,021 people use more than 450,000 pounds of that stuff per year. And thanks to you and your pledges, none of that will end up in our sewer system and pollute our waterways.
