Zero Waste October
The Zero Waste October Challenge was developed by Rebecca Newburn, a middle school science teacher in Marin County. She worked with Kathryn Kellogg of GoingZeroWaste and Anastacia Nicole, a zero waste specialist.
I was lucky to co-present a workshop with Rebecca today at Ecology Center in Berkeley. It was perfect to kick off Zero Waste October!
Schools are the perfect place to talk about Zero Waste, students from K to 12 understand very well why it's important to protect our environment.
If you work in a school, are a member of the PTA or if you're a teacher, please share and spread the word about this great initiative!! You'll find a lot of useful ressources on Rebecca's website to work with your classroom on a Zero Waste project.
Students can even take the 31-days challenge at home and move towards a zero waste lifestyle with their families!
Learn more on the Zero Waste Challenge website and participate to one of our workshops, we have one or more every month!
