Happy Earth Day
I had the wonderful opportunity to speak to students at Renaissance High school about recycling on Earth Day. Our Office of Sustainability provided 40 or so recycling bins to the LBUSD, for placement at LBUSD middle and high schools, and Green Ribbon Elementary Schools.
Local artists painted them with environmental, playful and whimsical styling. Using bright, vibrant designs will help to generate excitement for students and educators to recycle. The bins were donated to us by Global Inheritance.
