LEWISBORO, N.Y. -- Eco-conscious students at the Meadow Pond Elementary School in South Salem are doing their bit to make the Earth a little greener.

Fifth-graders in the newly formed “Recycling Matters” club are also giving back to their community, school officials said.

The students collect items each month and come up with creative ways to reuse them and to keep them out of landfills, said Dr. Lara Monasch, the group’s advisor.

They gathered up more than 27 pounds of Halloween costumes, which they donated to the Northern Westchester Community Center in Katonah, Monasch said.

They have also collected towels and newspapers to benefit R.O.A.R., an animal shelter in nearby Ridgefield, Conn., and have donated gently used children’s books to the community center.

Bottles and cans are also collected and the money from refunding them will be used to support local charities.

The students, Monasch said, plan to buy breakfast foods and toiletries for an emergency shelter in Mount Kisco.
