Education Programs

Programs are available for schools, clubs, and other community organizations upon request for onsite or virtual. Other resource support is also available such as handouts, books, videos, and reusables for crafts or projects.

With the strange new school year, we want to make sure your classroom gets to experience those extra “fun” moments! Why not request an educational box with supplies to make a recycled craft and a fun book to read too?

See the form below to get started!

3R’s ( Grades Pre K–2)

This introduction to 3R’s helps the students learn early the importance of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Students hear a story, participate in a sorting activity, and learn how to start recycling right with a new classroom recycling bin.

Compost Stew (Grades Pre K-2)

Learning about the Earth’s natural method of waste disposal must start somewhere, and this is it. Using a rhyming story, students are introduced to the concept of waste reduction through composting. Participants work together to create a healthy compost system through an interactive model.

Garbage Monster (Grades Pre K-2)

Students will learn that most of the things we throw away could be recycled instead! Using a story and a fun reuse craft, students will learn more about what items can be recycled, reused, or donated.

Freddy Fish (Grades Pre K-3)

Students travel with Freddy as he journeys downstream, encountering pollutants along the way. During the interactive story students add “pollutants” to Freddy’s water so that they can see the impact on it. The activity is followed by student suggestions on how they can reduce pollution to keep the their water ways clean.

Edible Landfill (Grades 3-6)

What goes into our landfills each day? Using a variety of edibles, students learn how landfills are designed and managed. Emphasis is placed on how much waste they generate and the content of that waste. They will learn about the importance of recycling and composting in waste reduction. At the end, they get to eat the treat!

More Than 3R’s (Grades 3-6)

Through an interactive game of bingo, students will learn more about the other R’s- Refuse, Repurpose, Refurbish and Rethink.

Worm Composting (Grades Pre K-8)

Vermicomposting is fascinating for all ages. Students learn all about worms and especially their role as nature’s composting critters. Each student examines and touches a worm. For more curious classrooms, a worm bin can be set up to keep and monitor all year.

Paper Making (Grades 3-8)

Students learn about how the paper they use every day is made, as well as the energy and resources that go into the production of paper and the details of its manufacturing. Students will use paper from the recycling bin to make their own paper to take home. Seeds can be added to make a special paper gift.

Drowning in Textiles (Grades 6-12)

Fast fashion of buy it, wear it a few times and discard are having a strong negative effect on the planet. Students will learn the history of fast fashion and its social and environmental impact. But most importantly what they can do to make a difference and even some popular mending repair!

Your Footprint (Grades 9-12)

Everything we eat, use, wear, buy, and throw out in our lifetime as an impact on the planet. Students will explore what their environmental footprint is and how they can make a difference by making small changes to reduce their footprint.

Add On (All Grades)

A reuse project can be added to most programs to help reinforce the message. The reuse activity can be done immediately following the program or can be left for the class to do later.
