Closing the Loop: The Circular Economy in Schools

  • Tuesday, September 29, 2022
  • 3 PM ET

Schools across the country are setting zero waste goals, implementing expanded recycling and composting programs, and working to finesse behavior change programs to encourage the best diversion across campus. But to achieve true zero waste the system needs to be redesigned from the start, including what is purchased, how it's packaged and expectations about lifecycle of the products used.

Join this webinar from the Center for Green Schools to learn more about the concept of circular economy, how your school system can get on the path to zero waste, what to look out for and where the biggest impacts can be made. Attendees will hear about tools to help with this work and a great case study example from UC Berkeley who is striving to close the loop and create a system of circular economy for all!
