In the Town of Reading, the authors chose to raise awareness, generate concern and stimulate children to action through one day environmental learning fairs at each of Reading's seven schools. Townspeople from many different sectors were part of the effort. The case study looks at how effective these fairs were as a tool to begin educating children about pollution prevention. The results may be useful to other towns and cities interested in environmental education.
