These glass containers will be filled with lunch trash (one with 6 ounces, the other with a pound)~ as I am off to dig in the dumpster of the school....oh the joys! and then I will also have some waste-free examples of what a lunch could look like....
so our science fair is tonight, and here is our waste free lunch display....
This was actually really impactful putting together.
I started thinking~
if only 10 families go home and make the changes for waste free lunch,
and they have 2 kids in school~
that is 20 lunches a day saved from our landfill.
20 lunches multiplied over a years time is
1,340 pounds of waste diverted.
We have a school of 710 kids..... I believe that 10 families is actually low anticipation.....
but, still~ a difference.
the cute thing about my son and I putting this together was just the shock that he had when he figured out that kids actually threw away their lunches..... He has never even thought "trash goes into lunch".... he almost got as passionate as I did!
