Lunch ladies

zero-waste-lunch3

Annie and I did lunch today…no, not at a fancy restaurant. We were the Zero Trash Hero spotters at school. It was really heartening to see how many kids bring reusable lunch bags, food containers and drink bottles. Very impressive. We gave out lots of Zero Trash Hero tickets. We’ll be announcing the prizes very soon (if anyone has great ideas for prizes let us know!)

I will be back at the school on Tuesday and we’re looking for one  more volunteer. Annie will be there next week too (on Wednesday or Friday). We need help from noon to 1pm. It’s very easy – you wander around, spot ‘green’ lunches (like the one above), give the kids a ticket (which goes straight into the box) and a sticker. Also as they file out of the lunch room we help them put their trash in the right bins (below is the blue bin full of clean cafeteria trays). That’s it. If you go to the ABOUT page you’ll find our emails – or leave a comment here and we will get back to you asap.
