Selfless Self Care by Zero Waste Club

Are you looking for ways to make your hygiene, self care, or beauty routines more sustainable? Unfortunately many of the products people tend to use for these areas contain or are plastic, a majority of which cannot be recycled. Check out this infographic for zero waste and eco-friendly options or alternatives so you can look out for the planet while taking care of your body!

For high schoolers, there are 2 primary pathways into Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV), which is a program of the Berkeley Public Schools Fund:
1. Students who can give at least an hour every week could join Berkeley Schools Volunteers (BSV) as a “Distance Learning Volunteer.” These volunteers complete BSV’s onboarding training and then get matched with a BUSD Host Teacher (at the grade level and subject area of their choosing). They support online – in whole group Zooms, in small groups, or even in 1:1 breakouts. They might also help their Host Teacher review students’ asynchronous work. The distance learning volunteer application is HERE and we have several orientations in January.
2. Students who have time every once in a while can join Berkeley Schools Volunteer’s COVID-response email list to get notified about and sign up for other district-wide projects. Some projects are ongoing, like staffing the Ed Hub every Tues/Thurs afternoon (BUSD’s central distribution site for tech and learning tools) or joining BSV’s Tech Support team (to answer student and family tech questions asynchronously). BSV also has periodic one-time events like assembling science kits, or restoring a school garden. COVID-response volunteers receive about 2 emails each month with ongoing BUSD volunteer opportunities. Students can sign up to join BSV’s COVID-response email list HERE.
We hope many of you can join us on the front lines of BUSD’s COVID-response during this very difficult year.
Please reach out with any questions:
