  • Make Nice Mission: H.E.A.R.T. & Environmental Ethics Make Nice Mission: H.E.A.R.T. & Environmental Ethics

    Animal Haven also made an invaluable introduction to the folks at HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers). We're so crazy about them we wish they we could bring them home as well.

  • Make Nice Mission: Oceans of plastic Make Nice Mission: Oceans of plastic

    Our city trash is endangering the lives of many sea creatures. From our very hands, trash can make its way through the drain pipes on the road and straight into the ocean. The trash floating in the water fools creatures into thinking they've found food, many mistaking plastic bags, soda packaging and bottles for food, leading to them suffocate, choke and eventually die. Teaching the “reduce, reuse, recycle” message can be used as an attempt to stop these disasters from happening.

  • Make Nice Mission The Web Of Life Make Nice Mission The Web Of Life

    A few months ago we started a project where we took classic children’s books and recycled them into art projects to display in our homes. One book that we loved too much to let sit and collect dust was The Little Island, by Margaret Wise Brown. When we sat down with the ladies at HEART and discussed their K-3 Environmental Ethics program, we were pleasantly surprised to see that they also had a soft spot for the classic book and had featured it in a lesson to teach their students about the Web of Life.

  • Make Nice Mission: Earth Day Make Nice Mission: Earth Day

    Earth Day is April 22. Students in the H.E.A.R.T. program partake in the Eco-bag Program which teaches them about the waste we produce in our world, particularly those nasty plastic bags. They create eco-bags to reduce the use of plastic bags.

  • The Edible Schoolyard NYC The Edible Schoolyard NYC

    We all get asked all the time to help make a difference by making a donation, volunteering our time, or helping to spread the word for worthy causes. Finding the time and figuring out where to put your energy is never easy. Over a year ago, I had the privilege of hearing philosopher Vandana Shiva give a presentation about her environmental work. She spoke about how our issues with food were at the root of all our world problems. She truly inspired me. The time to act was now! Of course "now" meant a year later for me. I still hadn't even been able to remember to pack my kid's lunches on field trip days. I didn’t have time to go undercover, join marches, visit third world countries or tie myself to trees. How was I going to make a difference? The Edible Schoolyard NYC came to my rescue. Fortunately beyond helping me, they help thousands of wonderful little bundles of need everyday!
