Earth Day Activities for Wisconsin Teachers
SC Johnson and the Milwaukee Brewers™ are partnering to reduce plastic waste at American Family Field as well as educate and raise awareness on the need to reduce and effectively manage waste, particularly plastic, at both home and away. Together, we want to contribute to preserving our planet and its environment for the next generation. Learn more here.
Recycle Crew is an educational outreach initiative by EarthEcho International in collaboration with SC Johnson and the Milwaukee Brewers™. The program began in 2022 with the goal of raising awareness about the importance of waste reduction and management. Through the Recycle Crew, students learn how to reduce and recycle the waste they may generate in the classroom, at home, and in the community. Along the way, we hope families will join the Recycle Crew's efforts, too!
April is World Earth Month and every year, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22. At a point in the year in which we focus even more on sustainability challenges, this is a great opportunity to empower students, their families and communities to play an active role in reducing, reusing and rethinking the waste that comes from our daily activities.
Through the Recycle Crew, eligible teachers in Kenosha, Racine, and Milwaukee counties, Wisconsin are invited to:
- Access a suite of FREE classroom resources including four discrete modules to help students investigate the management and reduction of plastic waste.
- Participate in weekly "R" challenges to help students show what they know about Reducing, Reusing, Recycling, Repurposing, and Rallying their peers.
- Celebrate and learn with their students at a community education event featuring hands-on, interactive activities for students to understand environmental hazards associated with waste, potential solutions, and the role we all play in ensuring environmental sustainability.
