This website from the African American Environmentalist Association was provided byKrissy Koenig, a librarian at Cleary Mountain Middle School in Virginia. Her students have been using this page for their environmental research and one of her students, Whitney, found this wonderful site asked that this link be included on our Earth Day Research page. Thank you Whitney! The African American Environmentalist Association (AAEA) was founded in 1985 to deliver environmental information and services directly into communities. The entire site is good and the link below talks about recycling and composting, it contains 15 additional links that are also worth a look.
