What is this blog all about?
This blog will track the zero waste challenge as it tours throughout the region, and share with readers experiences from the zero waste journey. You will find resources on how to reduce your waste, results from the classroom lunch audits, fun/silly/aha moments from workshops, and stories on how students in our region are actively reducing their waste. From September to December 2011 I will be traveling to schools in Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton, Mt. Currie, D'Arcy, Lillooet and Goldbridge sharing the Zero Waste Challenge. Readers are encouraged to share pictures, stories or tips on how they are committing to acts of zero waste - post right to the blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where did the Zero Waste Education Program come from?
- redesign our systems to reduce our levels of consumption,
- reuse existing products,
- and recycle what we once considered to be “trash”.
