The Problem

To help the environment and help reduce the food waste at my school. I personally know the struggle to fit a meal in the mere twenty-five minutes we are allotted in High-School. Sometimes you just can not finish all your food and it feels awful throwing it out as that is a waste of resources. I want to help reduce this waste at my High School and help the environment.

Our Plan

I want to implement a compost bin in my High School's cafeteria. Not an actual big, smelly one, but one similar to a trash can where the food scraps inside of it could be transported to an actual compost bin. I am going to be starting an Environmental Club soon at my High School which would take the responsibility of maintaining the bin. I will be writing my principal urging him to let us execute this project for the better of our Earth.
