FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Big Brother, Big Sisters teach kids how to “go green.”
Spending the afternoon having fun while learning how to "go green" at the same time. That's what kids did Saturday as part of the Big Brothers, Big Sisters "Big-Little Eco-Carnival."
The event, sponsored by Coca-Cola and Kohl's, hosted more than 300 big brothers, big sisters, and their "littles", to educate them about green-friendly ideas that can make a big difference in protecting our environment.
"It started out as a basic Easter egg hunt, well it kind of grew. Kohl’s came in and said you know what, Earth day is right around the corner, can we do an event where we teach the kids about recycling, about conserving energy, about the earth and how we can maintain and save and become sustainable,” said Shelly Schwab, Director of Development with Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
The carnival featured games, face painting, gardening booths, and each attendee was given an eco-friendly tote and a personal rain or vegetable started plant.
