Whitney High School’s Green Team, Grades of Green, Featured in Voyage LA

Justin Bulova has been with the Grades of Green team for about one year now, previously having worked with elected officials and aspiring candidates. His passion for community service and civic engagement have been a welcomed addition to our Grades of Green Team.

“Working with student leaders to protect our environment, to make a positive impact on our planet, I couldn’t imagine a better way to do that then in my current role,” said Justin.

Justin was recently approached to do an interview for Voyage LA’s Most Inspiring Stories series, and he immediately thought to include one of our Waste Campaign Teams. The Whitney High School Green Team from Los Cerritos, California are the recipients of the Best Alumni Grades of Green Team award and received a $500 Eco-Grant. The team plans to use the grant to help pay for biodegradable forks and knives for their annual International Day event. In addition, they will also use the funds to purchase a second compost bin.

Whitney High School was also recognized during the Impact-a-thon for some impressive metrics which they achieved by composting and reducing food waste. They were previously finalists in the 2018 Fall Water Campaign.
