Zero Waste : a Realistic Sustainability Program for Schools - 2 views

  •  
    This article talks about a program that K-12th grade schools can implement through out their school. It gives examples on a this program has already been implemented and changed in schools. It also talks about a the program can be implemented in a school. This program is a great way to teach children and staff different ways to create a sustainable school.
  •  
    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. "aever, 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?

    Great tips on a to cut down food waste. Cutting food waste a it helps you make yummy food in the kitchen. The last one is important to read.

    Original: "Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without" is a favorite adage in both frugal and green circles, and it is something I strive to live by. One of the best ways to "use it up" is to think differently about our food and ways to avoid wasting it. Lloyd wrote a great post a while back about the statistics for a much food we waste in the U.S., and the numbers are, frankly, appalling. On average, we waste 14% of our food purchases per year, and the average american family throws out over $600 of fruit per year. Paraphrase: Half the loaf of bread goes stale and the grapes aren't as fresh. With an attitude to stop waste and some creativity, you can create new things with your food before it actually goes bad. Left over roasted vegetable can be made into soup and leftover rice can be added into oatmeal the next morning. There are many more ways to reduce waste in your home.
