Promoting Litter Cleanup & Sustainability Across Oregon!
What is the Growing a Greener Generation Program?
SOLVE recently created the Growing a Greener Generation program as a resource for Oregon educators, students, and youth organizations. Growing a Greener Generation provides the tools needed to understand the importance of caring for our environment. The program is designed to teach youth about the importance of reducing our use of disposable items, recycling when we can, and cleaning up litter.
What does the Growing a Greener Generation Program offer?
Participants of the program will receive a Service-Learning Litter Cleanup Guide, which includes safety information, safety waivers, educational materials, and citizen science data cards from the Ocean Conservancy, among other resources. You will also receive cleanup supplies including heavy-duty trash bags, vinyl gloves, a first aid kit, and safety vests.
How do I participate in the Greener Generation Program?
Once SOLVE receives your agreement form, we will be in contact with you in 1-2 business days to discuss your project idea or classroom needs. Then, we'll add your school or organization to this website to be recognized and mail your cleanup kits and educational resources.
1) Connect with your school or youth organization
2) Decide what area you want to clean up. Your schoolyard? A nearby park? Your community?
3) Commit to at least two litter cleanups a year over one year.
5) Submit your results to SOLVE
6) Celebrate a litter-free environment!
Join an amazing group of committed youth groups and schools!
