CMEC's Green Initiative
We, at the Children's Museum of Eau Claire, are trying to become a little greener. We have programmed our timers to turn off our lighting automatically, resealed our bathroom floors so we can clean with neutral cleaners, and constantly reuse the paper in our office. It is not uncommon to find Mike Mchorney, the executive director, at meetings with coloring pages on the back of his reports!

The next step is taking is place in our activity rooms and we need your help. Traci Messner, the creative kids director, is seeking;

  • empty cereal boxes
  • corn meal and oatmeal containers
  • paper to use for coloring
  • brown paper bags
  • white buttons (any size or shape)
  • plastic grocery bags
  • old computer paper
  • metal juice lids
  • film containers
  • the plastic covers of oatmeal and coffee can containers

If you have any of these things at home please feel free to donate them! They will make their way into our activities.
