Earth Day Extra at the Disney Store

Third graders celebrate Earth Day at the Disney Store in the Westfield Santa Anita Mall.

Sometimes there are events that I would love to take CC to, but for scheduling reasons we just can't make. That happened today, when we were invited to join third-grade students from Holly Avenue Elementary School in Arcadia at the Westfield Santa Anita Disney Store to celebrate Earth Day.

These forward-thinking students donated more than 1,000 cans and bottles to recycle as well as presented a donation to the Nature Conservancy. For their efforts, they each received a Friends for Change and Disneynature "Oceans" branded hat, which itself is made from six recycled plastic bottles. The Disney Store also offers more eco-friendly merchandise such as totes made from recycled bottles and a Toy Story Space Alien Tree Planting Kit.

I'm always happy to applaud the little ones who are thinking big -- and setting a great example for my own half-pint.

I'm sure there were lots! Wish we could have visited. It's great to see kids in action. :)
