What We Do

Founded in 2011, Green Living Science(GLS) is a Detroit-based non-profit organization focused on providing sustainability education to students, families, and businesses throughout the community. 

As an outgrowth of Recycle Here!, Detroit’s drop-off recycling center and the city’s neighborhood recycling program GLS was created in response to the Detroit Public Schools Community District's request to bring education about recycling and natural resource conservation to its students. Early programming consisted of assemblies and in-class lessons to teach children about reusing and repurposing materials as well as natural resource conservation.

Over the years, GLS has expanded their programming to not only serve schools, but also businesses, and community members. GLS is dedicated to educating Detroiters about the impact waste has on our planet. The organization’s mission is to help Detroiters deepen their understanding of their impact and reliance on the natural environment
