Think Before You Throw

Students from Berkeley High's Green Team worked in a "Climate Challenges, Climate Solutions" summer internship with the Green Schools Initiative and Berkeley Climate Action Coalition to create an educational video highlighting waste reduction opportunities for schools.

Funded in part by an Altamont Education Advisory Board grant, the video features 4Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, & Rot) messages, an interview with the City of Berkeley's Recycling Manager and endorsements from Berkeley's Mayor and Superintendent of schools.

The  video is being used in classrooms and at assemblies in Berkeley schools to help students understand why it's so important to reduce waste, and how to sort waste properly at school.
