Today I went to each classroom and gave each teacher a green bag to distinguish our plastic from other trash.
I arrived at school early in order to make sure and get everything set upon the cafeteria before students started eating breakfast. I could not set up prior to that due to after school programs on campus. I created a large sign with green paint and glitter to help draw attention to the plastic collection area.
The students were instructed to clean off as much food as possible then place only plastic in the green bags.
I a perfect world there would not have been peanut butter on the menu.
