QUARANTINE DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN THAT ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION IS CANCELLED!
This month, Grades of Green launched the bingo challenge with LASAN, were featured on the South Bay Eco Festival, had a Grades of Green student honored with the “President’s Environmental Youth Award,” and shared our student’s work and pitches on Instagram!
Grades of Green is partnering with LA Sanitation & Environment (LASAN) to celbrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by challenging Los Angeles families to reduce their impact on the environment by improving their waste footprint!
PRESIDENT’S ENVIRONMENTAL YOUTH AWARD
Justin from the Parallel Projects received the EPA’s “President’s Environmental Youth Award.” He has created a global network of passionate students wanting to make a difference by reducing their waste through upcycling. Last year, Justin and his friend Perise in Cameroon transformed nearly 8,000 plastic bottles into useful projects! For all their hard work and impact, Justin and the Parallel Projects were also the recipients of one of the Eco-Grants from our last campaign!
We hope that you all stay safe and sustainable!
