Boulder environmental education program focuses on zero waste

Article: Boulder environmental education program focuses on zero waste

Traditionally, environmental education involves classroom lessons supplemented by field trips and hands-on learning. In 24 elementary schools in Boulder, Colorado, however, learning about waste, recycling, and composting involves going to lunch.

OK, that’s not the complete program, but Boulder’s Green Star Schools go beyond the standard environmental education curriculum in focusing on zero waste… and implementing these ideas in the cafeteria, where kids separate out recyclables and compostables.
