3R’s School Recycling Program
July 02, 2020
To honor Plastic Free July, we want to focus on the first, and most important, “R” of the 3R’s: REDUCE. Reducing is even more important than Reusing or Recycling, because it’s what helps us avoid making any waste at all. You don’t have to manage and process waste that you never created in the first place! There are a number of ways that your school and school community can REDUCE waste on-campus through policy and activities based learning. Some places to start school waste reduction include implementing a zero waste school events policy, banning plastic bottles, switching to reusable cafeteria serveware, and developing a food scrap separation plan.
