Business: Non Profit – Educational
Green Living Science (GLS) is an outgrowth of Recycle Here!, Detroit’s drop-off recycling center and the city’s neighborhood recycling program. We began working with the Detroit Public Schools in 2007, in partnership with their Office of Math and Science. Since then, we’ve reached more than 90,000 students.
Over the years, we’ve expanded our offerings to include educational programs, recycling programs and field trips and tours. We’ve also increased the scope of our constituents to include educators, workplaces, local communities and other groups. GLS was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 2011.
Each organization featured on Detroit Green Map has the chance to tell the story about why they are a sustainable “green” business.
Green Living Science began by working with Detroit Public Schools Community District to educate youth about the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Since then we have expanded our offerings beyond schools to reach businesses and neighborhoods. Through the Bee Green Business Certification Program we are able to help businesses develop a recycling and waste reduction program. This allows businesses to see if there is room for improvement to add recycling and/or composting programs that suit their individual needs and also promote their efforts working towards environmental sustainability. Green Living Science also works to promote the city of Detroit curbside recycling program by providing educational workshops to community organizations. Through these programs in schools, businesses and the community Green Living Science is able to connect Detroiters with waste reduction methods that can easily be implemented in their daily lives.
