Trash Free Tuesdays


A worm can eat its body weight in compost refuse every day.

The Trash Free Tuesdays activity encourages students to bring lunches that don’t generate trash. This is done by using trash free lunch boxes, reusable cloth sandwich or snack bags, or reusable containers. How about a reusable water bottle in lieu of a disposable juice box? Switch from paper napkins to cloth. There are over 50 million students in the U.S. Imagine the trash we could divert if they all switched to trash free lunches!
