Green building and design is more important now than it ever has been. With the climate changes an ever-present problem it’s important to get ahead the issue and start teaching children about how to mitigate damages through careful green practices. A mom at Torrance Elementary School saw an ad that mentioned Pacific Audi as a recipient of the Leed Gold Certification and decided that would be an excellent field-trip opportunity for the children of the school.
Reaching out to Audi
The mom got in touch with Alisha Auringer, the manager of the of the Environment for LAcarGUY and requested a field trip for the children. A full tour was set up for the children, giving them an opportunity to see how businesses can reduce their impact, while also seeing what goes on behind the closed doors of an automotive dealership and garage.
The Field Trip
The field trip consisted of a tour through the Service and Shop department of the Audi dealership as well as a look around the rest of the dealership facilities to see how green practices are put into place. The children were able to learn how cars are taken care of at the facility and to get a cool behind the scenes look at the day-to-day functioning of the company. Not only that but they even got an up-close look at the awe-inspiring Audi R8 as the team fired it up for the children.
At the end of the day the children went home with Eco penicillin sets and reusable LAcarGUY tote bags and a bunch of stories to share with their families about the practices of the car dealership and about green technology in general.
It’s these types of events that will help children learn to respect the environment more, and to understand businesses with healthy green practices and others that pollute the environment.
