Mandela Waste Audit Report 2010-11

Mandela Waste AuditMandela Waste AuditThe 16 students in Ms. Zimmerman's SLWRP class audited a sample of trash from the school's classrooms on Dec. 13th, 2010. The students have managed a succesful garden with Planting Justice, and are interested in composting. Their waste audit data not only provided support for a composting program, but also may be an indicator that their classroom paper recycling program has been a success! Students identified the mandatory cafeteria issued bottled water as an area of concern, and hope to address the problem with further class outreach. There may be opportunities for the students to change cafeteria policies about water bottles as well.
