The Grades of Green Program was first implemented at Grand View
Elementary School in Manhattan Beach, California, in order to raise
environmental awareness among kids.
It started as a parent-run volunteer program that was hands-on and
focused on being a support team for the broader school community. The
program became a huge success as it not only inspired children to make a
difference, but it also resulted in significant savings for the school.
It engaged parents and raised interests among the community to continue
rolling out this program in other schools.
Since then, Grades of Green has become a non-profit organization,
partnered with a local waste hauler and aligned its efforts with the
City Council and School Boards to expand the program. The success of the
program has led them to receive numerous awards and be nationally
spotlighted in magazines and television programs such, as “Curiosity
Quest Goes Green” on PBS.
