What better way to ring it in 2019, than with the New Years Resolution to reduce food and packaging waste?!? To celebrate the coming of 2019 we will have a lunch contest! Each grade will have their landfill trash weighed at the end of lunch, during the last week of January. Recycling and compost will not be counted. The grade with the least amount of trash accumulated by the end of the week, will earn a free recess! Buy in bulk whenever possible. Avoid pre-packaged lunches as much as you can. Reusable containers are easy to find at local stores and online. MightyNest gives back to the school and they have a wonderful variety of stainless containers, silicone baggies, and many other useful, waste reducing items! This is going to be so much fun! Good luck! Email me with any questions.
