Waste Free Lunch Stats
Over the last four weeks, an average of 100 students -- or one-fourth of students eligible -- have participated in Waste Free Wednesdays. This week, Mrs. Schaubroeck's class had the most waste free lunches with 13. Eagle Grams were rewarded to participants in Mrs. Schabroeck's class for their efforts. Ms. Simon's class was "most improved," increasing their waste free lunches from two last week to 11 this week. Keep up the good work!
Congratulations to ...
Kaitlyn S. (Mrs. Oliver) and Evan S. (Mrs. Herman). Because they brought waste free lunches, they have been selected as Conservation Kids of the Week.
Every Lunch Counts
A typical American school student trashes nearly 70 pounds of lunch packaging every school year. Instead of buying prepackaged snacks, which tend to come in nonrecyclable landfill-clogging wrapping, purchase things like crackers, trail mix, or carrots in bulk and pack them in a reusable food container. If every student packed a zero-waste lunch, we'd save 1.2 billion pounds from landfill every year.
