Pollution Prevention Project and Lesson Ideas


Learning by doing can be a very effective way to help classroom lessons resonate with students. On our blog, you'll find some fun and informative project ideas designed for students to get a hands-on experience in pollution prevention.

Either way, these ideas should prompt students to start thinking and acting in ways that will reduce pollution before it’s created.
