Join Diana Dehm, host of Sustainability News and Entertainment, along with our guests this week. We’ll be traveling around the nation to discuss one of the most important arenas in becoming a Zero Waste Nation … our K-12 schools. Join us as Diana and our guests discuss the “special sauce” when it comes to creating a Zero Waste Nation, and the extreme importance in educating our youth in becoming the next generation of environmental stewards. 

First, we head to Michigan where Jim Mcgrath discusses what it takes for schools across the nation to adopt more sustainable practices on their campuses. The Green Schools National Network provides a platform for nationwide information sharing to take place among schools the U.S. 

Next, we head to Washington D.C. to speak with Kelley Dennings, Senior Director of the recycling programs for Keep America Beautiful. Kelley discusses the successes of Keep America Beautiful, future goals set forth by the organization,  and how to incentivize recycling programs. Kelley really knows how to make zero waste concepts fun, educational, and economically beneficial! 

Last but not least, we have Byron Chafin join the show. Byron is the Director of Education for the Northern Region for Waste Management. Waste Management is the largest waste management company in the world, and they are working towards becoming a zero waste organization with a focus on design with intent. Byron discusses the importance of targeting food waste in schools by implementing compost programs, especially since 25% – 30% of a school’s waste stream comes form food waste! Waste Management has an entire program for implementing, rolling out, educating and monitoring composting programs. 

Collectively, all of these efforts are making one incredible impact when it comes to becoming a Zero Waste Nation, AND educating our youth. As Diana says, “We just need to support them, educate them, love them and get outta the way!”
