Youth Corps student, Kirsten C., taught her entire Earth Club of 25 after school elementary students at Budlong Elementary School in Los Angeles, California a lesson in Green Cleaning in early March. Kirsten’s lesson focused on how to make the Earth Club student’s schools and homes healthier and safer for themselves, their school communities, their families, and their pets by using non-toxic green cleaning supplies. Check out a clip from her lesson here.  After the lesson, the Earth Club participated in a fun hands-on green cleaning activity where they made their very own non-toxic and environmentally friendly all purpose cleaner to take home. Additionally, Grades of Green partner, Earth Friendly Products, visited the lesson and offered students eco-friendly laundry detergent samples for their participation.
