Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Shines a Well-Deserved Spotlight on its Green & Healthy Schools Program
Environmentally Focused Nonprofit Releases Video Campaign to Grow its Network of Educators While Informing the Public of its Presence in Schools
By: Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful
To create the videos, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful tapped into the talents of Green Shortz' Tom Mills. GC&B plans to release the videos in the months leading up to its March 30 meeting with GCPS educators and administrators. In addition to having a permanent place on the GC&B website, the videos will be featured in a series of e-mails and social media posts. Beyond providing an overview of the Green and Healthy Schools Program, they will highlight impactful initiatives within the program, including Plant-It Forward, Food Waste Warriors, and Compost Connectors.
"Not only do we show these initiatives in action, but each video is supported by personal testimony from educators who have a hand in the application of projects like leading their students in the planting and maintenance of pollinator gardens, the collection and reporting of food waste, and the delivery of food waste to their school's compost system," said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful. "I am incredibly proud of the collaboration between our Green and Healthy Schools Program Manager, Brenda McDaniel, and Tom Mills in creating these videos and shining a well-deserved light on this very important program in our schools. We believe they will be instrumental in helping us grow our GHS network. By growing our network, we can increase our impact on an up-and-coming generation of environmental stewards. That's how meaningful change happens."
