What is the Green Schools program all about?

Clark County Green Schools works with all local public and private schools in their sustainability efforts. We’re here to encourage environmental leadership and give students tools to implement change in their schools.

Waste Reduction Education

We provide assistance to boost waste reduction education and awareness in schools, providing recycling containers, as needed.

Composting & Recycling Assistance

We’re here to assist with food waste composting and recycling in cafeterias, offering education, containers and sort tables.

Environmental Certification

We connect schools to EarthGen (formerly Washington Green Schools), a statewide environmental certification program.

Guide to Conducting Student Food Waste Audits

Guide to Conducting Student Food Waste Audits - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the University of Arkansas collaborated to create a guide for students and school personnel about the amount of food wasted in their cafeterias. The guide provides information on why and how to do a food waste audit, what to do with the data collected, and also offers food waste prevention ideas.
