Willard Elementary School in Pasadena started their school year off on a green foot by having Grades of Green visit and give an assembly to remind students why it is important to reduce and sort their waste. Last year, students at Willard participated in Grades of Green’s Trash Free Lunch Challenge and reduced their waste by 75%! They also won the award for the best campus composting program. Willard decided to keep their Trash Free Lunches program going and set a new goal to reduce their lunchtime waste to 2 bags of trash or less every day by packing trash free and sorting their waste correctly. Interested in reducing your campus waste by over 70%? Click here to register for the 2016-2017 Trash Free Lunch Challenge!
