Last month we polled teachers on Edmodo to find out how much paper you think you and your students go through per week and found that about half of teachers who use Edmodo still say they use at least 100 sheets of paper per week.
If 1.6 million Edmodo teachers who on average use at least 100 sheets of paper a week, pledge to go paperless, we would save more than 160 million sheets of paper!
Pledge To Go Paperless for Earth Week
Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment. To celebrate we’re asking Edmodo teachers to make a pledge to go completely paperless for the week leading up to Earth Day [known as Earth Week], which is April 17-24th.
