Resource Conservation - Earth Day

Resource conservation is an important initiative in the Hillsboro School District. By monitoring and managing our use of electricity, natural gas, and water, we can reduce our consumption, save money, and use resources wisely. In addition, by lowering our usage of electricity and natural gas, we are reducing our carbon dioxde emissions, enhancing healthy learning and working environments. The Hillsboro School District strives to understand, educate, and practice sustainability strategies in collaboration with our community stakeholders.

Earth Day 2024!

Monday April 22, 2024

How will you honor Earth Day this year?

The theme for Earth Day 2024 is "Planet vs. Plastics". Plastic pollution remains at the top of priority list of environmental concerns. The health risks of plastics are at a critical level. For the sake of human and planetary health, there is an imminent demand for significant reduction in ALL plastic production. 

The elimination of single-use plastic is arguably the biggest call to action. Plastic can be found in so many expected AND unexpected products. How are you creating a plastic-free environment?
