Two Liter Bottles Needed to Build a Greenhouse
Dear St.Albans City School staff and faculty, 

Team USA  is hoping to build a greenhouse out of two-liter bottles. We have 5 as of right now and we need about 1000 total.  We are wondering if you could please bring in some empty two-liter bottles for Team USA's greenhouse. 

Thank you.
