Do you know how much our choices at home or around our schools positively or negatively impact the waste stream?

This two-session educator professional development workshop will focus on tools, resources, and ideas for sustainable choices you and your students can make to reduce waste streams while using the Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEE) framework.

Session 1: Introduction to the issues and challenges around waste streams generated by our consumer choices. Guest speakers will share about slow vs. fast fashion, statewide litter issues, and microplastics in the waterways.

Session 2: We will review data collected as part of a small homework assignment and apply conclusions to potential stewardship and civic action projects on both a personal and school-wide level.
