At Crestwood Elementary School, student volunteers work with staff to turn food scraps into compost with the help of an Earth Tub, a composting system that students call “bEARTHa.” In 2011, students increased the food waste going to bEARTHa instead of the landfill because they began eating in a central lunchroom where they could be better instructed. Also, during a long power outage in 2012, perishable school food that had to be disposed of was brought to bEARTHa instead of being placed in the trash.
