No Child Left Inside & What You Can Do
Listen, laugh & learn with the Green Divas (and Green Dude Scott) anytime – Podcast here!
A great day in the studio with all green divas and green dudes on deck! Had an excellent report from green diva Dr. Heather Eves from the DC area. GD Heather talked about the No Child Left Inside Act, which is all about helping to support updates in curriculum for elementary and secondary pubic education that incorporates more ecology, conservation and sustainability. The bill was originally introduced by Senator Jack Reed back in 2009 and was re-introduced in July of 2011.
Our feature interview was with Jessica Arinella of What You Can Do TV series on PBS. She had some nice and easy ideas for water conservation and offered a lot of statistics and ways to conceptualize and visualize how much water we use without thinking. Some of her ideas are listed in the Links & Resources post on our website.
In between, we had excellent reports from GD Lisa on some very practical AND interesting ideas for repurposing stuff; and from GD Scotty on a new eco-friendly lighting solution – the Electron Stimulated Luminescence (ESL) solution by a company called VU1.
Please visit our website for a list of ideas for repurposing from Lisa’s report and other relevant links & resources from the show – Green Divas website.
Hope you’ll listen to this broadcast!
