int. classroom - day

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014 3 versions.

KALE and CORRIANDER are standing in front of the classroom as members are mingling around. A large poster hangs on the white board. It's a drawing of a diamond, however KALE and CORRIANDER refer to it as the triangle. They call the meeting to order. Members settle into their seats.

KALE

Shalom ladies. And bros.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

CORRIANDER

(bows) Savasana. Savasana. Welcome to the first meeting of the Recycling Society.

STUDENT #1:

Don't you mean the Recycling Club?

No, society. Club is such a cold and official word. Society means we're like a family. But we're not actually a family, that's why I'm not using the word family. Since I don't like people.

CORRIANDER

Thank you, Kale. Well, there is a reason why we are all here. We are here to save the world from a fiery, flooding, polar bear-less demise, through the beauty of recycling.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

Members look confused.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014

KALE

Well. It looks like you all don't look convinced.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

KALE walks to nearest trash can. He digs through the trash can and pulls out a crushed Coke can. He and Corriander are horrified.

KALE (CONT'D)

Everyone look at this! Look at this abomination! OMG, Corriander. OMG. Do you all know what happens to cans like these?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014 2 versions.

CORRIANDEr

They end up in our landfills, burned to a crisp, releasing CO2 into the air. You all know who breathes the air?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/21/2014 2 versions.

KALE

You. Me. Grandma.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

Corriander

Do you want Grandma suffocating and dying in her sleep?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014 3 versions.

KALE

I wouldn't mind.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014 2 versions.

CORRIANDER

And that is why we recycle. Because we love Grandma.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

SAL

If, I can interject. When the Earth gets warmer doesn't that mean water levels rise and Florida will end up underwater? Won't that be better for humanity? Like, totes better?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/21/2014 5 versions.

KALE:

Yes, yes. And who are you?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

SAL

My name's Sal. But you can call me Salamander. Uh...Shalom.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014 2 versions.

KALE and CORRIANDER eye SAL warily.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

corriander

Because we love Grandma and polar bears more than we hate Florida, we recycle. So what are we measly human beings going to do about it? Well, we will be holding our first activity this Saturday at 10:59 in the morning.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/20/2014 3 versions.

KALE starts getting emotional.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

KALE

Not 10:58. Not 11:00. 10:50. AM. If you arrive late, you might as well start flinging Coke cans into the ocean. Because it shows that you're not taking this seriously. Recycling isn't some new trend that comes and goes, like juice cleanses or platform sneakers.

CORRIANDER goes to comfort KALE as he takes a seat. SAL joins and awkwardly pats KALE.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

corriander

This is what we do at the Society. We make a difference. And we also make music. So as this meeting comes to an end, Kale and I will play some of our original musical poetry pieces. This one's called: My Garden and Me.

Student #2:

Will there be sign ins?

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

kale:

You already signed in. We all sign in once we make contact with this realm.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

corriander

And quick, FYI, please don't refer to Kale and I as your "presidents." It sounds so distant and cold. Please call us your, Dalai Lamas. We are your spiritual guides and leaders.

CORRIANDER starts tuning the guitar.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

corriander:

Also, if anyone is in Adelante Mujeres, we're picking our next male sacrifice victim at our next meeting, be sure to make it.

cindycc101e2 - on 02/17/2014

KALE and CORRIANDER start playing their song as the members quickly shuffle out.
