A Great Green School Experiment

In 2008, Fisher Elementary School (a school of approximately 500 students/staff) in Walpole, Massachusetts embarked on a mean, green, school experiment.  Their eco-bound route, as you'll see in this short video below, took them a long distance in a short period of time:  they landed a 3-way reduction:  70%  in classroom trash, 53% in combined total school trash, and a 37% in wasted milk!  Major strides... and a prime example of how much of a difference the power of one (one school) can make!
