After my extended hiatus I am so happy to be back! Today I want to look at what we can and can't do regarding Plastic Pollution during this time of Sheltering in Place, Quarantine at Home, and Lockdowns. We can be safe and continue to do our part to curb Plastic Pollution. We just need to do a few things a little differently for a while. So here we go, a few ideas to reduce single use plastics during Covid-19.

We love to work with educators developing curriculum to meet your specific needs! We will come to your school or meeting place to work with you in developing diverse, cross-curricular units that fit your state's Standards and Benchmarks. We also do grade level multi-media, hands on classroom presentations.
A typical day might consist of a morning staff presentation / workshop, tailored to meet your specific needs. Then a whole school assembly to introduce Plastic Pollution to students. After the assembly, we will happily go to individual classrooms to teach cross curricular, hands on, grade level appropriate lessons.
We will also meet with community groups, from Scouts to city councils, to discuss ways to reduce the "plastic footprint" through education and taking small steps toward a reasonably "green" future.
If you are a school or community leader who would like to work toward a Plastic Free future,please let us know! We can accommodate groups of any size.

Next week Plastic Free Curriculum is on the road! We are fortunate to have been invited to join The Green Highway, the educational wing of the Bonnie Rait tour. This summer Bonnie is joining James Taylor, and we will be with them for several dates!
Come and say hi if you're going to be in Memphis TN, at the Fed Ex Forum August 5, DTE Pavillion (aka Pine Knob) in Clarkston, MI on August 8, The Blossom Music Center, in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio August 9, Fenway Park in Boston on August 11, or September 2 at The Big Top Chautauqua, in Bayfield, WI! We will be presenting information on plastic pollution, as well as what people are doing to fight it. We will offer information on our curriculum and outreach programs, and have lots of free giveaways! We hope to see you on the road!
I have written curriculum for Chicago Public School, Mt. Pleasant Public Schools, in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. the Michigan Geographic Alliance, the Alliance of Michigan Foundations and the Council on Economic Education. I have a passion for teaching teachers and students about Plastic Pollution.
