More Art, Less Waste - Environmental Education Program


ReCreate shared its wildly popular More Art! Less Waste! program with over 10,000 grade school students in our region last year.
Our school visits start off with a lively presentation, aided by a slideshow and video, on what happens to garbage when it leaves our homes; we then talk about how we can help our local waste management authorities in their efforts to protect the environment. Kids learn why—and how—we should reduce, reuse, recycle. Then, in order to enhance students’ ability to re-envision trash, we take them out to our Rolling ReCreate truck, let them pick out a super cool art kit mad from diverted art supplies, and return to the classroom to transform these salvaged materials into awesome crafts. We never cease to be amazed by students’ creativity!

A note to educators: We will resume our reservations for our More Art! Less Waste program for unincorporated areas of Sacramento County in August, 2018.   If you would like to be put on the email list for notification please email 

If you are from a different school in our region, we can visit your school, on a fee for service arrangement.  For more information about ReCreate making a hands-on presentation at your school, email us at
