Happy Earth Day! This year at my school we started the task of garbage sorting.
The process is fraught with difficulties. And yet at the Vancouver Sun Run this Sunday, the process was streamlined and highly successful. 40,000 people converged in BC place Stadium to eat oranges, bananas, bagels, cheese and drink chocolate milk and juice. Lots of garbage. Multiple sorting stations.
Teams of volunteers were at the stations directing people toward the appropriate container. And they even were separating out soft plastic and compostable cups. I am inspired to work harder to train volunteers to make this happen with the same ease at our school🍃🌺🌱.
