Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Provides Activities, Resources and Tools to Reduce Waste for Back to School

While the school environment does require certain amounts of folder paper, notebooks and pencils, it’s important to look at how we can reduce waste in all aspects of our lives.  The EPA provides resources to help educators and students learn about waste reduction as well helpful tips that families can follow right now to reduce their impact on the environment.  Younger students should check out the interactive games that introduce key ideas to reduce waste.  Older students can get ideas for science and service-learning projects.  Schools can find a guide filled with strategies for reducing waste in every aspect of operation.  Families can find tools for creating a zero-waste lunch plan.   By reducing waste, we are preserving natural resources, reducing the carbon footprint and preserving valuable landfill space.  Click here to visit the EPA’s resources.
