Celebrate Earth Day with Sustainable Silver Lake

This Earth Day, Sustainable Silver Lake will continue its Earth Day program with events at Micheltorena and Ivanhoe Elementary Schools. Programs designed for students and parents will focus on eliminating litter on school grounds and reducing the trash generated from packaged foods at lunch and snacks, such as juice boxes and chip bags.

Ivanhoe Elementary School will be designating the whole month of April as Earth Month. Their goal for Earth Month is to educate students about reducing solid trash and proper recycling methods.

At Micheltorena Elementary School, Sustainable Silver Lake will be teaming up with the already established Micheltorena Elementary School/Community Garden volunteers to clean up and raise awareness of litter on Micheltorena's school grounds.

In addition, on Saturday, April 23 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council will launch "100% Clean for 2018 - a Solar Silver Lake Campaign" at the Micheltorena Elementary Library.

Sustainable Silver Lake is committed to assisting the community in adopting sustainable practices through education, outreach, and incentives. For more information, contact
