Schools

As a Sustainability Coordinator and Green Consultant, I encourage a smaller carbon footprint community-wide. Working with schools, I offer assemblies, seminars, presentations, outings and in-class visits guiding students in making a connection between waste and consumption behaviors and the environment. I also offer guidance to students and faculty to aid in school-wide implementation of recycling systems tailored to the specifications of each individual school.

As a member of Green Schools NY Public School Composting Pilot, I have experience overhauling existing (or non-existent) recycling systems. After the success of the compost pilot program on NYC’s Upper West Side, the New York City Departments of Sanitation and Education not only adopted the program, but have initiated an expansion of the cafeteria organics collection program citywide!
