M.Y. Little Tool Shack
In October 2008, Marie’s brother held the first Teen Green Party with a Purpose. She was 4 and really wanted to participate. At age 5 she got to participate in her first tree planting when her sister turned 11. Saplings were just her size – but, the shovels & gloves were not.
Her siblings and the other eco-inspiration coaches could see she wated to do more with equipment that was her size. They made sure all future events could support the “saplings" – the siblings of the teen volunteers.
Thanks to REI Discover Green opened The M.Y Little Tool Shack in September 2011 stocked specifically with equipment for the whole family. Specializing in equipment for children 4-9 including shovels, gloves, trash grabbers and weed wrenches. Although the tool shack is not the first tool shack in Travis County – it is the only one that is targeting children and youth. Discover Green has helped 95 events since September 2011 and has loaned over 5,400 tools!
