Spring Meltdown Green Team Shout Out

It's official. Having someone stand by the trash/recycle/compost bins makes a HUGE difference. It is even ok that I overheard someone calling me the 'compost nazi'. If that means less stuff going to the landfill, so be it. The only items that went to the trash: plastic forks, plastic straws from the smoothie guy, and plastic wrappers from the sunglasses. Not bad. But can we do even better??? We saw a lot of food waste going straight from the food line into the compost bin after just one bite...

A special shout out to the Spring Meltdown Green Team members: Rachel deSimone, Anne Orr, Jacob Frankovich, Annie Granthan, Sarah Irish, and Becky Peterson. You all rock. Check out more photos on our facebook page.
