Moore MST Magnet School Is Going Green

hydration station

Students at Moore MST Magnet School in Tyler will notice some new additions to their campus when they return to school on Monday.  Five new hydration stations have been installed around the campus.  The goal is to reduce the use of plastic water bottles and encourage recycling and reuse.

The hydration stations dispense cold filtered water that is triggered by a sensor, when a bottle or cup is placed in front of it.  The unit also features a “green ticker”, which counts the number of bottles that would have been used and as a result have not ended up in a landfill somewhere.

School principal, Claude Lane, says, “We are bringing awareness to our students about the value of quality drinking water and the impact this natural resource can have on their learning” (TISD press release)  He also hopes that the students take away the fact that they are helping reduce non-biodegradable wastes from being placed in landfills.  The new water stations were provided by the PTA and through other campus activity funds.

Moore MST Magnet school also has paper and aluminum recycling programs in use too.
