Memorial Tabernacle Church
During the last two years, StopWaste has been working with Memorial Tabernacle Church in North Oakland and their Youth Going Green (YGG) Program to help spread the word about the importance of composting, recycling, and energy efficiency programs. YGG members Nuvia and Mya are passionate middle-school students who are helping their community and the planet. Working closely with their adult mentors Tiffany and Marilyn, they have set up "maker" fairs, participated in the Bay Area Science Festival, and collected and distributed over 100 composting pledges and pails. YGG was honored for their inspiring environmental leadership at the Sierra Club’s David Brower Dinner this fall. We are excited to share the series of tutorial videos we made with their help. These short one-minute videos show us how to:
- Keep your green bin clean with a newspaper origami liner
- Compost meat and bones
- Keep compost clean
- Make party-time composting easy
Check out these videos (and more!) on our YouTube Channel.
