Teaching kids how to reuse trash in creative ways is the essence of the Reverse Garbage eco-art workshop program.

“Designed for 6-12 year olds, our themed workshops centre around the second of the three R's, reuse. Facilitators discuss the world of waste and how it impacts our environment as well as putting reuse into practice in creative ways with kids” says Workshop Co-ordinator, Nadine Schmoll.
