Schools have long been sustainability champions that instill life-long environmental awareness in students. Students who learn about waste and recycling at school develop positive environmental habits that are brought home and impact the entire family. Waste Reduction Week in Canada school resources are excellent for educators who want to reduce waste at their school and implement sustainability into the school curriculum all year long.
