Lower School: Roeper Reduces Lunch Waste by 24%!

Earth Day Celebration

As part of the Lower School Earth Day Celebration, students participated in a trash sort to examine ways of reducing our impact on landfills by lowering our lunch waste.  Students were challenged to bring to school only the amount of food they could consume, use reusable containers, and to complete a “trash sort” during cleanup to sort items into compost and recycling piles rather than into the garbage pile.  In just one day, kids reduced Roeper’s lunch trash by 24%!  When it comes to reduce, reuse and recycle, ROEPER ROCKS!
