Communities

Given our commitment to and involvement with schools, it comes as no surprise that it is our mission to educate about recycling and proper waste disposal options in Detroit. Helping to share information about what will happen to our city if we don't work on sustainable initiatives.

Virtual Learning

In the midst of a global pandemic, we cannot gather and celebrate as we normally would. Please still plan to celebrate, as it is important to be mindful of the earth we inhabit now more than ever. Here at Green Living Science, we have been working remotely to help you celebrate at home in whatever way is meaningful to you.

Check out the resources we put together, and feel free to share! If you enjoy them as much as we hope you will, please consider making a contribution so that we can come out even stronger on the other side of this pandemic!

Green Living Science put together a few resources to reduce waste at home!

Just click the title of the activity to download.

While we are spending more time indoors these days, we can take this time as an opportunity to reflect. Look at your waste and see if there are ways you can begin REDUCING the amount of materials you consume!

  • PLASTIC AUDIT

    • The plastic crisis has had a negative impact on our environment. The chemicals plastic is made from are large contributing factors to our pollution problem. Do our audit to calculate and see how much plastic you use! Then, begin to brainstorm ways you can avoid even purchasing plastic. Once you’ve made some swaps, re-calculate your plastic use and feel free to share with us!

  • PLASTIC SWAP

    • Many alternatives to purchasing plastic based products already exist. These generally require a larger, upfront cost, but ultimately save you money and help the earth at the same time!

For more information about how you and your family can reduce plastic pollution, and to watch a film series, check out Beyond Plastics HERE.

We have great educational videos for all ages!

Check out PBS Kids video on the history of Earth Day!

  • 20 million people participated 50 years ago on April 22nd, 1960. How many can we get to participate on April 22nd, 2020??

  • How do you usually celebrate earth day with your community? Compare that to what you're doing to celebrate this year and share with us! Send over a video (we love and miss our community and would LOVE to see you!), or a note @GLSDetroit!
