cherylcircleJoin us as we create a top-notch extra-curricular program that teaches Portland’s high school students to tackle the problems of waste in their schools and communities. We’re off to a great start: This spring we helped the Environmental Club at Grant High School launch a school-wide recycling effort. Next fall we return to Grant and expand to two more schools!

Our students care deeply about the environment and want to take an active role in creating a sustainable future. The Zero Waste Leadership Project gives students the tools and experience they need to start that journey.
