There is no better community event for Grades of Green than one focused on students! This week we attended two events in our community. Youth Corps eco-leader Leslie educated and inspired nearly one hundred teens and adults at Marine Teen Night at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. She used Grades of Green’s Eco-Wheel to teach Aquarium guests interesting water, waste, toxins, energy, air, and earth facts. Many students were also interested in getting their school involved in Grades of Green’s Water Challenge, which is a great way to engage teens in environmental issues affecting their local water supply.
The Grades of Green team also hosted a short workshop with Amigos Unidos Manhattan Beach to train their teen volunteers on how to inspire and empower their peers to care for the environment. Twenty volunteers learned about the importance of waste reduction as well as simple things they could be doing to help care for the environment including reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting.
Are you inspired to care for the environment? Grades of Green is currently recruiting schools from across the globe to join our Spring 2018 Water Challenge! For more info, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
