Students from the Channing Elementary School Recycling Team recently starred in a new Zero Waste Boston video. Watch and read below to see them in action and learn more about the City of Boston’s new zero waste plan.
A Message from Greenovate Boston:
Boston’s first-ever zero waste plan, designed to move Boston towards becoming a zero waste city, was released in June 2019. This plan includes near- and long-term strategies for reducing waste in the City. Key pieces of the plan include expanding Boston’s composting program, increasing access to recycling opportunities and launching a city-wide education campaign on recycling.
The City has already begun implementing the Zero Waste strategy, but we can’t do it without you. This vision centers around residents taking bold actions to reduce waste by buying less, reusing, and recycling right.
As New England Aquarium’s Research Scientist Kara Dodge says in the video, as residents of a coastal community, we are all part of the solution. Learn more at https://www.boston.gov/departments/environment/zero-waste-boston.
Thank you for all you do to build a resilient, clean, and healthy community. Let me know if you have any questions.
