Grades of Green Youth Corps students were busy keeping the holidays green as they hosted a table at the Holiday Craft-a-Round in Long Beach in early December. The purpose of the event is to encourage people to reduce, reuse, recycle, and get creative during the holiday season. At the Grades of Green table, Youth Corps students showed people how to make bird feeders out of plastic bottles and sporks, as well as gift tags from the cardboard lunchtime trays. All reused materials came from lunchtime waste at Hughes Middle School in Long Beach, a Grades of Green school. Thank you Murad, for being a wonderful sponsor of our Youth Corps and supporting our outreach events!
