Helping schools and communities achieve their zero waste goals
SEI’s Zero Waste team helps schools implement sustainable waste reduction and recycling programs in order to comply with mandatory state laws. We work with schools and communities to build a culture of environmental stewardship, create opportunities for project based learning, and save money on refuse hauling services.
Zero Waste Marin Schools Program
Since 2015, SEI has supported Zero Waste Marin in reaching their diversion goals through the implementation of the Zero Waste Schools Program. Our support in Marin County reaches 20 schools and 11,000 students each year.
Let your inner artist shine while learning about the importance of reducing waste by participating in the eARTh Challenge! In this challenge, you can get creative and compete in up to three art projects, each based on a different zero waste theme. Choose the project that is most interesting to you, or complete them all.
Give second life to materials in your kitchen that would otherwise be discarded! Watch videos on food waste to learn more about the topic.
Outdoor Exploration Edition
Get outside and explore to reflect on the question: What happens to waste in nature? Then create a piece of art with anything that you have gathered outside.
Upcycle objects in your home that are not being used or will be discarded. Then, reflect on the idea of reusing and repurposing items.
Watch us Take the Challenge!
