We have seen the need to reduce waste created in our school cafeteria and classrooms. Our team of 16 fifth graders has consulted with Eric Magers of Seaside Sustainability about beginning this project with a week long trash audit. We will be presenting the results of this audit and more about our project to the rest of the elementary school staff and student body. We will then continue by raising awareness of waste through classroom presentations and whole school assemblies. We will work with our school's facilities manager to install our waste system in the cafeteria and monitor our progress.
