Inspiring our Youth

Inspiring our Youth

• Seeds for Kindness

A high school class in Virginia was recently inspired by Seeds for Kindness, particularly our Flip-Flop animals.  Many of the students were already aware of the concept of recycling, but when they saw the flip-flop animals they wanted to know more. So, they were asked to recycle or up-cycle something that would otherwise be garbage into a different form. They could spend up to $5 to help with the project (like thread, etc). 

We loved what they came up with!
