The Young Activist Club began and remains an after-school club sponsored by the Piney Branch Elementary School PTA. Half of our members are students at Piney Branch ES. The other half – alumni of Piney Branch ES – now attend middle school at either Eastern MS or Takoma MS.

We have several school-related activities:

Piney Branch ES Dishwasher Pilot Project: Pilot testing washable lunch trays in place of disposable styrofoam trays.

PTA Polystyrene-Free Pledges: Advocating that PTAs adopt a policy to avoid polystyrene at all PTA events.

Trash Free School Lunches: Educating parents and students on how to pack trash-free lunches, measuring lunch trash before and after, holding a trash-free lunch day.
