EcoExpress is an exciting Teacher’s Resource Center that sets a new standard for engaging students in understanding the value, importance, and benefits of taking an active role in environmental stewardship.

EcoExpress embodies GreenTreks approach by showing where issues such as global warming, air pollution, poor water quality, waste disposal, and local food intersect with our everyday lives. Using the power of video stories, it helps bring these global concerns down to a local level and connects mandatory environmental education themes and lessons with the real world, in a thoughtful, compelling, and relevant way. It guides teachers in using these stories and extends the learning from the classroom to the schoolyard and into the community to get students truly involved.

EcoExpress: Videos Tied to Standards. Local. Relevant. Real.
