While stumbling through some non-profit fundraising websites, we found a program known as The Future Project. This organization is fighting to change the education system and transform schools into places of inspiration and passion. It is critical to provide opportunities to students to thrive and provide direction for them to realize their dreams. Public education is in a time of crisis; billions have been spent on education reform, and yet students, especially those in urban areas, are still very unprepared for college and the workplace. The Future Project hopes to change that by promoting new and alternative teaching methods both in and outside the classroom.

Mixed Bags Designs is no stranger to Grades of Green; we partnered with this wonderful non-profit in their quest to help schools and students go green in April of 2012 by providing eco-friendly products for their fundraising needs and has since been a proud sponsor.
On Earth Day 2010, the website for Grades of Green was launched in the hope that protecting the environment could be an accessible goal for students and schools everywhere. Today, it is an incredibly successful non-profit that provides tools and information that schools can use to make improvements and focus on being more green and teaching students how environmental protection can be second nature.
We love to celebrate student efforts to go green all around the world and were particularly excited about this latest news. Congratulations to the students at Ashurst Wood Primary School in the United Kingdom, who recently won a Silver Eco Award for their school-wide effort to make a positive change and protect the environment. The Ashurst students had duties including energy-saving activities like recycling paper, shoes, clothes, and making compost from fruit peelings. In addition, the school’s teachers link environmental issues to their curriculum. Continue reading
