Generation Earth is an environmental education program of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works presented by TreePeople.
We Follow Steve Howe - Tree People - on Norwalk Campus as he is doing a waste reduction/recycling workshop, teaching the school, students and teachers 'how to set up a program on campus that is practical, solid and sustainable'.
After assessing what the generation of waste is and what problems the school is facing, 'Generation Earth provides step by step instructions of how to set up the program and how to find solutions for to those problems'. Each student generates about 220 pounds per person per year of mixed paper plastic and bottles.
Generation Earth helps students and teachers understand how essential it is to recycle, allowing this waste to be diverted from the landfill and to be reused.
We follow Della Robertson and her students as they collect waste on campus and go through the sorting process. For two years, Norwalk High-school has won the Battle Of The School's Award honoring the school in Los Angeles that was able to recycle the most.
Campus recycling is a vital initiative that should be followed all across the nation.
