Today, High Point Academy documented a 84% waste diversion rate…materials that will be kept out of the landfill. Of that, 76% was compostable destined for composting. The school is gearing up for their Earth Day Event on April 22, 2016 and eager to share how they do it! Within two weeks time, the 7th grade students will be embarking on a science experiment to study the water conservation benefits of using compost on their athletic field. The results will be shared at the Green School Showcase event on 4/22/16. The public is invited! Be on the look out for announcements and press releases in the coming weeks.
