    I think that is pretty cool that they have the kids get involoved as well, because like you said it is a great way to teach kids about sustainability and maybe some could even educate their parents. "However, most school districts don't have an award-winning nonprofit to implement a comprehensive Zero Waste program for them." (Schumper & Dietz). This comment made me think, are Zero Waste programs very exspensive if it is not through a non-profit group, and is that why other schoos do not implement this?
