STEM Library Lab is sponsoring a pre-packaged Service Learning Field Trip to The Green Project's M.E.S.S. Lab. Service Learning ties the academic content to relevant, hands-on community service. The program curriculum is aligned with Louisiana standards in Math, ELA, Science and Social Studies for 4th and 5th grade students. Students are given a brief history of The Green Project, a creative reuse tour, and a scavenger hunt before experiencing the paint recycling process from start to finish.

Serving New Orleans since 1994, the Green Project's mission is to promote a culture of creative reuse by diverting usable materials from landfills and cultivating a respect for their value. Our mission is executed through three main pathways: a salvage store, paint recycling program, and environmental education.
