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 made 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!
