Eco Club: Mulch Project

The Problem

Our group has chosen to start a composting program at our school. We have noticed that a lot of the students are very wasteful during lunch and our nutrition breaks and we want to teach the campus about composting and put the uneaten food to good use. After we have created the mulch, we will then use that to plant more trees/flowers to beautify the campus and create more biodiversity.

Our Plan

We will know that the program is successful when we actually start making the mulch and we can notice a decrease in the amount of uneaten food that is thrown away. We will be outside during lunch to ensure that excess food from students is acquired and not simply thrown away.
