School is the perfect place to practice waste reduction. Students who learn about waste in their classrooms gain good lifetime habits. And they teach their families how to minimize waste.
Schools are encouraged to plan Waste Reduction Week activities by using the School Resources below. Participating schools have celebrated by starting their own composting or recycling program or even visiting a recycling plant! And don't forget to register your event! Your school can also participate in two special campaigns: the Recycle My Cell Challenge and the Ease My Load program.
Step one: download the School Resource Kit. This resource will help your school get on the path to
waste awareness and reduction! Then see the tools below for classroom activities and more.
