Yesterday, our Launch Day of our Cafeteria Ranger Program at The Children’s School was truly amazing!
We had only one bag of garbage, weighing only 5 pounds on our first day of our student leadership cafeteria program!
Congratulations and a huge thank you to the entire school community!
Our garbage weighed 20.76 pounds from breakfast and all lunch periods on one day.
Before student leadership in the cafeteria, there was lots of contamination*
*Recycling and compost that went to the landfill because it was placed in the wrong bin.
Before the Cafeteria Ranger Program:
Recycling contamination was 25
Trash contamination was 80%
Organics contamination was 8%
(photos and data from Launch Day, October 11, 2017)
One bag of garbage, weighing 5.1 pounds from breakfast and all lunch periods on one day!
Our garbage is now only 5 pounds AND we have reduced contamination:
Recycling contamination is now 0%
Trash contamination is now 0%
Organics contamination is now 0%
Students diverted a total of 73 pounds from going to a landfill!
ALL this, with student Rangers as the leaders!
