Kids get information on what it means to be green and how to reduce the amount of trash you accumulate (shrink your carbon footprint) during Earth Day week. Bring in an interesting piece of trash and let’s see what treasure we can make out of it. Old t-shirts, bottles, milk jugs, cereal boxes, cans etc. are just a few items we can use to upcycle.
