Green Living Science needs help in getting more Detroit families to recycle

In our recent Detroit People Issue, we profiled Matthew Naimi, the man behind the scenes of Recycle Here, Lincoln Street Art Park, and Green Living Science — three intertwined entities that serve to help Detroiters recycle.

We'd be remiss to point out that Green Living Science is currently in the middle of a fundraising campaign to help get more households in Detroit recycling. Aside from recycling education, a sizeable obstacle for some households is the $25 fee for a recycling bin. 

Green Living Science hosts free recycling workshops that teach people how to reduce their waste and take advantage of Detroit's curbside recycling program. They are currently accepting donations — a $25 allows Green Living Science to provide a recycling bin voucher for any household that takes part in the workshops. Rizzo Environmental Services has pledged that they will match up to 65 bins for their service area.
