EL SEGUNDO, CA, March 26, 2018 – After months of sorting lunchtime waste, hosting educational assemblies on waste
reduction, and packing trash free lunches, Grades of Green’s 7th annual Trash Free Lunch Challenge finalist schools
have been selected – with all schools diverting a whopping 463 TONS of waste from local landfills!

 

20 schools located in the greater Los Angeles area entered the Trash Free Lunch Challenge in fall 2017 to see which
school could divert the most waste and best inspire their student body to adopt lifelong waste reduction habits. Grades of
Green provided each school with a personalized advisor, leadership training webinars for student leaders, an educational
assembly, an eco-starter kit, and a customized waste reduction plan. Grades of Green Team student leaders ask peers to
reduce trash by bringing reusable lunch containers and using lunchtime sorting stations; forming habits that will protect
the environment for years to come.

 

As in past years, the schools exceeded expectations! The Trash Free Lunch Challenge schools collectively diverted over
46,300 bags of trash from local landfills - and more impressive than trash bag reduction is the students that made it
happen. The schools educated over 13,000 students on waste reduction. Each of these students, including those who buy
lunch, learned to sort waste into share box/food donation, compost, liquids, recyclables, landfill waste, and tray stacking.
This year’s Challenge schools achieved a 66% percent average lunchtime waste diversion rate.

 

The finalist schools from the elementary school category and middle school category are:

 

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (in no particular order):
Charles Helmers Elementary (Santa Clarita)
Our Lady of Guadalupe K-8 (Hermosa Beach)
Victor Elementary School (Torrance)

 

MIDDLE SCHOOLS (in no particular order):
Helen Keller dual immersion Middle School (Long Beach)
Oak Middle School (Los Alamitos)
South Pointe Middle School (Walnut)


Environmental Experts from the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County, Northrop Grumman, the County of Los
Angeles Sustainability department, Algalita Marine Research and Education, Surfrider – South Bay Chapter and others
will sit on the Trash Free Lunch Challenge Judges Panel. The panel will meet and discuss each of the finalist school’s
applications in late March to decide upon a winner. The winning elementary and middle school will each receive a $1,000
education grants to continue their environmental programs.

 

Grades of Green will also be awarding the following recognitions to these participants:


Berkeley Hall K-8 (Los Angeles) – Best Compost Award
Carthay Center Elementary (Los Angeles) – Litter Busters Award
Castle Rock Elementary (Diamond Bar)– Best Recycling Award
Cyrus J. Morris Elementary (Walnut) – Best Education Award
Evelyn Carr Elementary (Torrance)– Best Green Team Award
F.D. Roosevelt Elementary (Lawndale) – Best Food Recovery Award
Gaspar de Portola Middle School (Tarzana) – City Leaders Award
Jackie Robinson Academy K-8 (Long Beach) – Green Leaders of Tomorrow Award
Nettie L. Waite Middle School (Norwalk)– Most Determined Award
Overland Elementary (Los Angeles) – Greenest Community Award
St. Anthony K-8 (Long Beach)– Green Stewards Award
Skyblue Mesa Elementary (Canyon Country) – Community Activists Award
Whittier Elementary (Long Beach)– Most Inspirational
William F. Prisk Elementary (Long Beach) – Super Sorters Award
 

“The goal of the Trash Free Lunch Challenge is not only to reduce waste but also to teach children how to reuse, recycle and compost. Educating students through programs such as these furthers our mission of converting waste into resources in the communities we serve,” said Grace Robinson Hyde, Sanitation Districts’ Chief Engineer and General Manager.


“We are so impressed with the student leadership at our Trash Free Lunch Challenge schools,” said Allie Bussjaeger, Grades of Green’s Director of Regional Programs. “These students have gone above and beyond to inspire their campus communities to reduce waste. From delivering classroom presentations, to hosting grade level competitions, to making educational videos, these students are making waste reduction easy and fun!”

Grades of Green's Trash Free Lunch Challenge is a yearlong competition where Southern California schools challenge each other to see which school can reduce the most lunchtime waste. Grades of Green teaches students to reduce trash by bringing reusable lunch containers and using lunchtime waste sorting systems.

Through fun, educational assemblies, personalized eco-starter kits, waste reduction plans, and Grades of Green Advisors available to personally guide each school, Grades of Green helps create an environment where every school can be a winner! A panel of environmental experts will evaluate the implementation and success of the three finalists’ trash reduction programs. The winning schools (one elementary and one middle school) will receive a Grand Prize of a $1,000 education grant. Click here to learn more about the Challenge.

We are excited to announce that FDR Elementary is one of the 22 schools in California that will participate in this year's Grades of Green Trash Free Lunch Challenge. Read below for more information. 

 


 

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! CELEBRATED WASTE REDUCTION CONTEST KICKS-OFF FOR THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR

 

22 So Cal Schools will reduce over 300 tons of trash in Grades of Green’s7th Annual Trash Free Lunch Challenge


WHITTIER, Calif., October 9th, 2017 - When it comes to lunchtime trash, less is definitely more. That’s the lesson environmental education nonprofit Grades of Green wants to teach students as the organization kicks off its seventh annual Trash Free Lunch Challenge (TFLC).


Students from participating schools will learn how to decrease waste by packing trash-free lunches (such as reusable lunch containers, water bottles and utensils, and cloth napkins). All students, including those who buy lunch, will also learn how to sort lunchtime waste to be donated, composted and recycled.

 

Through a combination of sorting waste and bringing reusable lunch containers, TFLC schools reduce an average of 70 percent of lunchtime waste; winning schools reduce over 92 percent of trash. In total, 117 schools have diverted 2,300 tons of waste from the landfill since the Challenge began seven years ago. This year, Challenge participants are on track to reduce at least 300 tons!


While these metrics speak to the program’s success in helping schools protect our environment and divert waste, the real results are the environmental values students take home. “The goal of the Trash Free Lunch Challenge is not only to reduce waste but also to teach children how to reuse, recycle and compost. Educating students through programs such as these furthers our mission of converting waste into resources in the communities we serve,” said Grace Hyde, Sanitation Districts’ Chief Engineer and General Manager.


“Grades of Green’s goal with our Trash Free Lunch Challenge is to help participating schools start lasting green programs to instill environmental and waste reduction habits that will stay with students for a lifetime,” said Allie Bussjaeger, Director of Regional Programs at Grades of Green. “We are changing the course of the future by making environmental protection second nature in young minds today.”
