NRRA Workshops are designed for use in standard classroom settings and most can be tailored to fit the curriculum and developmental needs of any class, grades K-12. Workshops are also useful as a staff development
tool and work great as the focus of a Green Team meeting or Recycling Club after-school event.Workshops are generally 50 minutes long, but can be shortened or lengthened to fit any classroom period.

Garbage Guerrillas

A workshop version of our very popular Trash On the Lawn Day (T.O.L.D).  Rather than sorting all the waste from a day, participants collect small working samples of waste, which are audited and analyzed. 

Healthy Home, Clean Waters 

Participants investigate household toxins, primarily cleaning chemicals. They learn how to identify toxic products, why it matters to human health and the environment, how to safely dispose of toxics and how
to make or find safer alternatives in the market place. Appropriate for all ages, hands-on activities vary according to group. All participants receive recipe books for making non-toxic products from common,
inexpensive items.

Back to the Earth 

Yard trimmings and food residuals together constitute 27 percent of the U.S. municipal solid waste stream. That's a lot of waste to send to landfills when it could become useful and environmentally beneficial compost instead! Composting offers obvious resource management benefits and creates a useful product from organic waste that would otherwise have been landfilled. This workshop, available for all
age groups, explains how composting works and how to make it work.

RECYCLING AND COMPOSTING IN YOUR TOWN

Participants are introduced to the specifics of solid waste management as practiced every day in their local community. This workshop identifies the organizations which handle recyclables and compostables in your own town and region.

Waste=Global Climate Change 

This workshop connects waste and global climate change and is followed by a Q&A session. A group break-out session explores and evaluates the school using a waste-focused "School Sustainability Scorecard."
Teams reassemble to report their findings and to reflect on environmental practices and policies the school already has and those they might consider adopting.
