As the school year comes to an end, Grades of Green Youth Corps Eco-Leaders are starting to get recognized by their schools and communities for all of their Grades of Green eco-activities that they began implementing back in the fall. Grades of Green Eco-Leaders Johanna and Averie from Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica and Noah and Braeden from St. Marks School in Venice were recently recognized for their leadership by Supervisor Sheila Kuehl from the LA County Board of Supervisors 3rd District. Johanna educated her community on ocean pollution solutions, Averie is working to ban plastic water bottles on campus, and Noah and Braeden reduced their school’s waste by 75%!  Check out the article by clicking here (also available here)!
