Zoe Price, class of 2014, is a student in Berkeley High's Green Academy. During a recent Waste Audit with EarthTeam, Zoe made quite an impression with her passion for and dedication to waste reduction. She is a founder and active participant in the Compost Club, working towards diverting compostable waste away from the landfill.
Zoe shared the following about the Compost Club, "We meet weekly to work on the wider goal of implementing compost into every class room at Berkeley High...We hope to speak with our principal, Mr. Scuderi, and the school district about making composting a part of the custodians' jobs, and raising their salary according to the added work."
Congratulations Zoe on being selected as the EarthTeam student of the month for April 2012 -- keep up the great work!
