Alta Vista Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, and Madison Elementary from Redondo Beach have all partnered with Grades of Green to become greener schools.
Both Alta Vista and Madison have been working hard to reduce their trash at lunch time by implementing Grades of Green’s Trash Free Tuesdays. Madison has already seen a reduction in trash, cutting its daily trash bag count from ten bags to two! Alta Vista is also rolling out a composting system for lunchtime fruits and vegetables to be used to fertilize their garden. Jefferson has created a Green Committee that has been key to the implementation of activities such as Walk-to-School Wednesdays and Beach Community Cleanup days.
