KNAB sends out a huge THANKS to Patriot Subaru of North Attleboro for their generous gift in recognition of the work that Keep North Attleborough Beautiful does to celebrate Earth Day.

One of Keep North Attleborough Beautiful’s most important goals is to educate about proper recycling, litter, and reducing use of plastics. Marsha Goldstein, KNAB’s Executive Director, presented programs on these and related environmental topics to all Kindergarten and Grade 5 classes in the North Attleborough schools in March and April, 2019. She utilized a Power Point and brought items for sorting into baskets labeled trash, recycling, and reusing-donating. Marsha was pleased to note that students were attentive and some already had knowledge of proper recycling. The expectation is that they will bring what they learned to adults at home in order to improve environmental habits.

Marsha Goldstein of Keep North Attleboro Beautiful spent a recent Monday morning talking about recycling with her most eager audience yet: A group of 5- and 6-year-olds at Roosevelt Avenue Elementary School in North Attleboro.
There, students in MaryAnne Carter’s class learned which items from their trash can be recycled and which items can’t, how long it takes discarded items to break down in landfills and about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a collection of debris floating in the Pacific Ocean that is now twice the size of Texas.
