“When you learn, teach.” – Maya Angelou

Students and Recycling

Students learn that they, too, make waste every day – just like adults. They learn what items can (and can’t) be recycled, and why it is so important to recycle. The students will also participate in a “Recycling What-If” game which reinforces the lesson!

Freddy The Fish

Students learn that what humans do can have terrible effects on animal habitats, especially in waterways. They also learn that students and adults need to be more aware of their actions and the consequences of those actions.

As Freddy the Fish goes on an adventure and travels downstream in the stretch of the river in which he has lived all his life, he encounters some surprising and even life-threatening obstacles. Students enjoy an interactive part of this adventure, observing and identifying the effects of human actions, and learn how these habits can be changed.

Here Today, Here Tomorrow

environmental awareness - cigarette butts - 250x167

Students learn about the most littered items in the world and their environmental effects on public health, plant growth, property values, neighborhood crime, vehicular accidents, and injuries to children and animals.

The most-littered items in the world are cigarette butts. Surprised? They contribute to fires, water pollution, habitat poisoning, health issues, and much more. Displays shared in this workshop will disturb you as will statistics and facts about cigarettes and butts.

The second category of most-littered items? Plastics. While Americans are recycling 12-13% of their plastic bags, almost 90 BILLION plastic bags, sacks, and wraps are used in the U.S. each year. That means 82 billion bags end up as litter or in our landfills.

In addition, Americans buy over 28 BILLION one-time use, disposable, plastic bottles of water each year – a good number of these are littered throughout our communities or end up in our waterways.
