Kids have the potential to become avid champions of the environment. Sound education is key to their success in making a big difference at home, at school, and in their communities.
Eddie the Puppet’s Litterless Road Tour and The Air Out There are popular and entertaining workshops offered by Clean Foundation for students in elementary school. Eddie, an environmental superhero cat, uses songs, rhymes, and humour to teach kids about the impacts of litter on our communities, animals, and health.
Eddie’s Waste-Less Lunch Challenge challenges kids to reduce the amount of waste in their lunches. Kids get to meet a friend from a local wildlife organization who shares his experience with waste and how it impacts his habitat. Through a variety of teacher-led activities, students learn about waste, health and nutrition, and how to make an impact in their communities.
As with all of Clean’s youth education workshops, these presentations identify specific outcomes and are designed for easy classroom integration and incorporation into curricula.
