Consumption at School

Reducing Consumption in Schools

As centers of learning, schools are the ideal environment for youth to observe and participate in efforts that address over-consumption with meaningful results. By working to cut excess in our schools, we come closer to reducing the material impact of our community all while building an ethos of sustainability within today’s youth.

To help our school community reduce waste and consumption, Oregon Green Schools and the Portland Metro Area School Resource Conservation Network put together an easy guide to waste-reducing actions with hyperlinks to resources.
