School may be out, but Grades of Green never takes a break from carrying out its mission to inspire and empower kids to care for the environment! Last week, Grades of Green educated 300 students from the Los Angeles Expo Center’s summer programs about the importance of reducing waste. Students learned about the 4 R’s and even played some of Grades of Green’s favorite eco-games. When playing the How Long Until It’s Gone game, students were surprised at how long it takes different manmade items to decompose in landfill. From plastic bags to glass cups, the Natural Resources Matching Game taught students where their everyday items come from in nature.
