From the entry: “The average American generates 4.3 pounds of household waste per day and diverts 34% of it through composting and recycling. With a little effort, I generated only 0.85 pounds of waste per day and diverted 80% of it from the landfill.”
We can all make a significant impact on our environment with relatively minimal effort. The Waste Reduction Challenge offers educational lessons and activities for students of all grade levels to learn about waste and the importance of recycling and reducing consumption. Make the Waste Reduction Challenge your Green Week theme!
