The Problem

The thousands of polystyrene lunch trays thrown away each day in our school district. This creates problems with pollution, health, and safety. We need to do better if we are to call ourselves a "green school."

Our Plan

We will replace polystyrene lunch trays with viable, sustainable alternatives by gaining support from our community, partnering with an internaitional nonprofit, and creating a thorough presentation to share with the board.
