"THANK YOU!! What a wonderful show and the kids absolutely loved him. It was exciting to have a professional eco-magician come to our rural towns.

- Deanna Hostetler - Clean Valley Recycling

"Educational and a ton of fun! Students and teachers were laughing, learning, and having a blast. Highly recommend!"

- Rainbow Elementary School PTA - Madison, WI

"Steve Trash and his shows created an excitement in our community about recycling and they supported our teaching about recycling. We will be bringing Steve back again and again. He is great."

- Beth-Anne Ferley - Recycling Educator - Rapid City Recycles

"Thanks so much for your performances all week and the grand finale at the Capitol Theater. The kids absolutely loved it! What's really great about these performances is that you can effectively convey a message to thousands of people AND keep their attention. Without Steve Trash & crew in town, we'd never have been able to get our recycling message to 6000 kids in just 4 days. It was a pleasure working with all of you and hopefully we can do it again in the future."

Most people don't have time to watch the entire IN SCHOOL show. It's 45 minutes long. They just want to know that it's really awesome. Which, by the way, it is. So we've condensed the whole Steve Trash - IN SCHOOL - show down to a 27 second long time-lapse video. Short. Sweet. Quiet. (normally this show is really really loud). Check it out.
