Checkout the new Grades of Green resource for schools below! 

One of Grades of Green’s signature activities is Trash Free Lunches, and while we encourage every student everywhere to bring their food and drinks to school in reusable containers, we know that many students receive their lunch from school cafeterias each day. So how can these students reduce their waste? Through a Grades of Green sorting station! Creating a sorting station is a great way to educate students on where their waste goes, what items can and cannot be recycled, composted, and more. For ideas on how to set up a sorting station for your school, click here, and check out our Trash Free Lunches website activity for more details. Is your school located in Southern California? If so you may be eligible to participate in our Trash Free Lunch Challenge – email us at to learn more about how you can get involved!
