Spanish Language Students Help Local Community

Finishing the semester strong, the AP Spanish Language program teamed up with Blue Jeans Go Green in efforts to reduce waste by repurposing old worn blue jeans.

While reducing their carbon footprint and fulfilling required AP credit, the AP Spanish Language Club assisted Blue Jeans Go Green in their mission to recycle Denim by-product from their own manufacturing process into a sustainable housing insulation. The by-product, an environmentally friendly insulation, has even been incorporated by some non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity. 

Students of the Spanish Language program could not have been more eager to help, jumping at the opportunity to aid both local and national communities. In fact, their efforts have had a trickle down effect on the rest of the Trinity community. Following midterm exams in December, Trinity experienced a surge in donated denim items. Totalling 86 pieces donated to the J. Crew store located at the Mall of Millenia, our students strive to only increase their donations and seek to escalate their charitable efforts come spring.
