According to care2.com, in just ne year in the US alone, 25 billion water bottles will be bought, used once, and discarded.  Only 20% of those bttles will be reclycled.

The oil it takes to produce and transport those 25 billion water bottles is enough to power 100,000 cars for a year!  Got a reusable bottle?

There’s something new on OUSD lunch menus – a “leaf” symbol for menu items that are lean and green – healthier for you and the planet.  Lunch just got a whole lot cooler for kids and the planet in O’side.

 Have you ever stopped to think about all the waste generated from food items that are sold in individual plastic containers? As parents packing our children’s lunches, we can take small steps to reduce our reliance on convenience packaging. For instance, ask your child to bring home his clean Ziploc bag so it can be reused. Invest in re-usable containers and fill them from larger food containers instead of buying individual packages.  And by all means, pick up a reusable water bottle! It’s healthier for your child and the planet, saves you money in the long run, and they’re cool.
