A little help from tiny volunteers.

Realizing that no two schools are alike, PLP will visit your school to conduct an initial assessment and discuss your green initiatives and goals. Our unique assemblies foster kid-specific solutions. We help emphasize the importance of reducing consumption to conserve natural resources. By examining daily activities like brushing teeth and turning out lights, students are empowered with solutions to lead a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

Students will master the concepts of Reducing trash, the importance of Reusing things, what materials are Recyclable, and how inclusion of these fundamental values will show Respect for nature and the environment. Program includes an initial assessment visit to customize your program, sing-a-long songs and a slideshow for visual comprehension learners.

Our assemblies are highly interactive to reinforce concepts. Our mission is to provide meaningful assembly to promote your school’s sustainable initiatives.
