Another student project becomes reality! Ms. DeLeon’s 5th grade class from Elko, NV created and presented a project encouraging students to Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Her students created comics, posters, and slogans to help inform others of their work. Using the students’ art and slogans, posters were created for the school and community by Envirolution’s design intern, Juliana Ruffatto. We celebrated with Ms. DeLeon and her students at a pizza party poster reveal last month. To read more about other implemented projects Click HERE.Read More →
