Earthbongo Project of the Month: Pack a Waste-Free Lunch




Local youth and families are encouraged to participate in the project-sharing website earthbongo, which was created to encourage volunteerism. On the site, users can create a new project or join an existing one, then invite friends to sign up and work on the same project. Based in Seattle, earthbongo aims to give users online tools to engage in their communities locally and globally.

The "Pack a Waste-Free Lunch" project, Seattle's Child's environmentally-friendly activity of the month, was recently posted on the site:

Did you know that the average student throws away about 67 pounds of waste per year from their lunches? For many kids, that's about how much they weigh! Aside from all that garbage not going into a landfill, an average family can actually save money, about $370 per year, by packing a waste-free lunch. This project came directly from Washington Green Schools, which encourages kids and schools to be more sustainable and reduce their environmental footprint.
