Grades of Green had tons of fun hosting a 4R workshop for the Westside YMCA! Members were invited to attend an afternoon workshop where they could learn about the importance of taking care of the environment, and how they can use the 4R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle and rot) in their everyday life. The presentation kept the audience on their toes with an interactive games like “Trashketball” to practice recycling skills, “Natural Resource Matching” to remind students where popular waste items come from, and “How Long til it’s Gone” to discover how long it takes for common disposables to decompose in a landfill. The workshop concluded with a veggie stamping activity where each guest was able to make a card for a loved one using veggie scraps and stamps. Grades of Green looks forward to partnering with the YMCA to host more community workshops in the future!
