Help offset Barrington High School's paper usage by requesting a tree to be planted in your yard

Our Goals

Tree-Duce, Tree-Use, Tree-Cycle

We are Barrington High School’s National Honor Society and we will be hosting a tree-planting event on April 17th, 2021 where we will be planting 200 trees throughout the Barrington community to offset the paper usage of our high school during the 2019-2020 school year.


Despite our access to one to one technology in Barrington 220, we are extremely conscious of the fact that paper usage, though greatly reduced, is unavoidable.  Even though we can not avoid the use of paper, we accept the challenge to replenish what we have used!  Therefore, as members of the National Honor Society we have made it our mission to plant at least 200 trees in the Barrington community to offset the 1,205,253 sheets of paper used in the copy machines at Barrington High School throughout the 2019-2020 school year.  


To help us reach our goal, we are relying on you to sign up to plant a tree in your yard!  You can choose the number of trees and type of trees you wish to plant.  The National Honor Society is donating the trees to the Barrington community, therefore ordering trees comes at no cost to you!  However, if you would like to make a donation to the Tree-Plenish organization, please click on the donate button below!
