Going Green is Fun
Have you ever wanted to turn your trash into cash? Turning scrap paper into money is just one of the ecological magic tricks that Steve Trash can do. There were even more wonderful things to mystify the senses on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 when 130 students from the Academy of St. Francis of Assisi in Totowa visited the Community Theatre at the Mayo Center for the Performing Arts in Morristown, NJ. At the theater the students in grades 4-8 were given the fantastic opportunity to see Steve Trash Rockin’ Eco Hero perform. According to his website, Steve trash has traveled all over the planet performing magic tricks with garbage and teaching kids about ecology. The students were amazed and confounded by the way Steve could take an ordinary item that might be considered trash and transform it into something magical. Not only were the students entertained, they were also educated. The students learned the difference between the terms reuse and recycle. They also learned what things are recyclable. According to 4th grade student Angela, “Steve Trash was funny and a good influence.” This wonderful opportunity was made available to the students at St. Francis through the generosity of the Tri County Scholarship Fund.
