Greenest School In America

Eco Company visits a high school recently named the Greenest School in America in a national competition. As you can imagine Irvington High School in Fremont, California, is doing a lot to be green. On this day, the school’s environmental club “The Green Team” is conducting a trash audit. Yes, that means going through several days worth of school trash by putting on gloves and separating everything piece by piece into recyclable items, compostable items and trash that must go to the landfill. In the end the process helps them decide where to put emphasis to improve their systems.
