Our Youth Eco-Educational Resources, Research and Pilot Programs

Why this matters?

We work with youth and the young at heart. It is important to us that we keep optimism alive and promote all of the tools, resources and innovations that are available for a healthy and happy environment.

01

Youth Eco-Education Programs (YEEP)

This page shows where all our programs engage younger people. We provide opportunities for field tripsinternships, apprenticeships and volunteers as young as 12 years old.

02

Compost & Food

Our goal here is to promote food security and to divert waste into resources.  Surplus edible items and ingredients can be sorted and distributed to those in need. Compostable materials can be separated from recyclables in order to reduce landfill off-gassing and to produce carbon rich soil.

03

Resource Library

All ages, especially youth, need inspiration and hope for the future of our environment!  We have been gathering articles and research on exciting, green inventions, from around the world, since 2007. Enjoy!

It’s Easy Being Green

The 2018 Second Edition is now FREE online as a searchable PDF file! PLUS, new paperback copies are being printed, on hemp paper with soy ink, pre-order today!

The new paperback version has over 180 pages and we are again using A. Maciel Family Printing who pioneered soy-based inks in 1984. Also, like in 2003, we reunited with the Greg Barber Company for their socially responsible paper stock.

Peace of Mind Kits

2020 Project – The Peace of Mind Kit is our ecological complement to a “Preparedness Kit.” There are a lot of ways to reduce waste in disaster relief, including the expired conventional components (batteries, plastic water bottles).

For example, canned foods are better than perishables but veggie gardens are even better for long-term benefits and food security.

Join us if you would like to work on this project in 2020!
