1997 ~ Resource Conservation Program - Waste Free Schools

Life Lab teams up with the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, the County of Santa Cruz and the City of Santa Cruz, Waste Management and Ecology Action to create the Resource Conservation Project (later known as Waste Free Schools). Life Lab works with students, teachers and other school staff to encourage waste reduction through composting, recycling and other means. This program helps to reduce 3,500 tons of trash per year saving schools $65,000 annually.

In a typical year the Waste Free School Program conducts assemblies and in-class presentations that reach over 8,000 students per year.
