WHO WE ARE
Blueeggs Environmental Education Ltd. (pronounced as blue-eggs) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit-charitable organization formed in March 2016. It is our mission is to improve environmental awareness, academic performance, and critical thinking skills of children.
Blueeggs Environmental Education publishes workbooks to enhance both academic achievement and environmental knowledge of children. We also publish free math problems weekly. While traditional educational materials provide information on their subject matters only, our materials integrated environmental subjects into one of the most important core academic subjects – mathematics. Using actual data and real-life examples, our materials also provide children opportunities to stimulate independent thinking, promote their academic success, and gain confidence in their abilities to learn.
Blueggs also recycle school supplies and donate the collected items to help children in need in community and help reducing waste.
We also recycle used crayons to support teachers and protect the environment.
