Thursday marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day and we’ve been working with our friends at LA’s BEST to put together a fun and educational way for the students to celebrate the occasion. This week, 91 LA’s BEST sites—that’s almost 15,000 students—will participate in Earth Day festivals that will test their recycling knowledge while they have some fun.
These festivals are an extension of The “Go H20!” challenge, which aims to educate LA’s BEST students and their families about the importance of recycling plastics and reducing waste while emphasizing how drinking more water can promote a healthy lifestyle. Last fall, ACC supplied the LA’s BEST program with 15,000 reusable plastic water bottles made out of recyclable material and students participating in the challenge learned why water is a healthy choice and how choosing a re-usable, recyclable container benefits the earth. You can read more about the challenge here.
We’ll be sure to post pictures of the festivals so you can learn how to juggle plastic bags and practice your own water bottle bowling skills. In the meantime, let us know how you plan to commemorate Earth Day this year in the comments below.
