Turns out they just may be the first in the country, as their local recycling center has come up with the funds to build a new plant that will be able to strip the wax off of 1 million+ milk cartons, enabling them to be recycled in the process.
The reason they were picked is a result of their own letter writing campaign and intense lobbying to the City of Concord. Which shows the squeaky wheel often gets the grease and was a great civics lesson for the kids involved, but now we’ll have to see how well it all shakes out. And I can’t wait to hear about it.
In the meanwhile, they’ll keep on composting, recycling, gardening, and everything else that’s good and green they’re up to.
Congrats to Monte Garden Elementary!
