Earth YES is selling bracelets!!  Stop by a home basketball game or contact a YES team member to get yours, and if you’re feeling festive add a charm to your bracelet to celebrate Valentine's Day.  Show her that you love her as much as you love the Earth.

Donate your colorful bags to the Earth YES class!  You can put your used bags in the blue container by the door, reduce pollution, and save the animals if everyone contributes one bag you can reduce microplastics in our environment today!

The Earth YES class is selling bracelets; they are a dollar each.  If you buy a bracelet you will save the environment.  Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide, with 97% of them being thrown away.  Please help us reduce this number.
