What is the problem with plastic? This is the question the Sierra Club and the Valley Community Library will be exploring with a 3 week online program. Children and families can join in for fun discussions, book readings, and activities focused on understanding and reducing our dependence on plastics. We will be reading a few chapters from the book, “GO GREEN” by Paul A. Reynolds, at the start of each online meeting.
Everyone will then discuss the book, talk about plastic use in our daily lives, create art, and brainstorm solutions for our future.
We will be releasing a summary of each week’s activities after the webinar for those who are unable to join us for the entire 3 week session and paper printouts will be available upon request.
The book “GO GREEN”was chosen for it’s empowering message to kids, that even if they are young and don’t feel like they are heard, they are powerful forces. We are excited to be educating on issues mentioned in “GO GREEN” and teaching children how they can become advocates for the change they want to see.
Day 2: July 13th – “An Artful Solution”
What are some ways that we can reuse the plastic in our lives? Join us as we read the next two chapters of “GO GREEN” and discuss our findings from the week before and some artistic ways we can give new purpose to items in our house through upcycling.
