Did you know that recycling just one aluminum can is the equivalent of saving 6 ounces of gasoline? This St. Patrick’s Day, show your Green and recycle your cans and bottles! EcoMoms have a tremendous amount of power and influence. Now, for the education, advocacy and activism.
Let’s get greening. Our homes, our kid’s schools, neighborhoods and lives. An opportunity to hear about the zero-waste class room project and other “greenifications” that are being developed by teachers, parents and students in schools and homes. People are writing grants with school administrators and composting their kitchen scraps with red wiggler worms.Families are driving less and buying bikes. They are boycotting certain companies and buying eco-friendly toys, clothes and products. Families and schools are reducing, reusing, and recycling their stuff. Kids are bringing zero-waste lunches to school and becoming acutely aware of their excess.
Come and get a free Kiss Me I’m Green button!Up Next…Saturday, May 17, from 11 a.m. to noon. Solar Power Project tour of the Linden Hills coop solar project.
