go green elmhurst
After analyzing the Community Assessment survey, we discovered that there was a prominent pollution issue in Elmhurst. With that in mind, we decided set into motion a campaign known as "Go Green Elmhurst." We hosted events to advocate for a more "green" Elmhurst on August 17th and August 24th of 2013, at Elmhurst Park and Broadway Park, respectively. At those events, we led a Bottle Scavenger Hunt and held stations around the park that advocated for recycling and reusing materials such as newspapers and plastic bottles. The main goal of these events were to educate people of all ages, especially youth about the importance of protecting the planet we have come to know and love.
