Teaching About Waste

There’s an increasing attention being paid to waste of all kinds. That’s why a waste curriculum aimed at the most-important-to-reach Americans (from a waste-generating standpoint) is key.

Anyone looking to teach elementary school students about waste should say ‘Thanks, Ohio!’ And then turn to The Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Windows on Waste curriculum.

It includes information on food waste, but is by no means focused on it. Turn to page 144 for some handy composting education materials. And the message of waste reduction is included, too.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to say ‘YIMBY!’ (a positive take on NIMBY, covered in the curriculum).
