ZERO WASTE SCHOOLS FELLOWSHIP

Summary

An opportunity exists to take the global problem of waste, and find local solutions that work in Connecticut. The Zero Waste Fellowship Pilot Program, is an effort to crowd source innovative ideas and implement programs and practices that will provide environmental education, encourage food rescue, food scrap composting, increase recycling rates, minimize trash, and reduce material costs in our schools. The program will provide Connecticut students and teachers the opportunity to submit zero waste applications to this new program. Select applicants will receive funding to implement metric-driven initiatives.
