Green Living Science

Green Living Science (GLS) is an outgrowth of Recycle Here!, Detroit’s drop-off recycling center and the city’s neighborhood recycling program. GLS was founded in 2007 in response to the Detroit Public Schools Community District’s request to bring education about recycling and natural resource conservation to its students. Early programming consisted of assemblies and in-class lessons to teach children about reusing and repurposing materials as well as natural resource conservation.
