This week was the second week that the food waste for the Ort Report was recorded! On Monday during lunch, diners produced 60.2 pounds! That is a great improvement from last week’s 98.6 pounds of waste! It seems like students and teachers are becoming more conscious of their impact of waste!
Although the 60.2 pounds is a commendable reduction from last week, please remember that the club is still tweaking the collection process of the Ort Report. This Monday, we collected food waste and liquid waste for only half of the lunch period; the other half we collected only food waste and forgot to collect liquid waste. The Ort Report is a process and glitches like this are inevitable, but hopefully next week we will be able to collect and measure the waste as accurately as possible!
