Add depth to your recycling lessons by having students take a closer look at single-use foodservice packaging — what it is, why it’s used, and why it can sometimes be a smarter environmental choice than reusables. The activities explore real-world examples of sustainability decisions faced by schools, restaurants, and communities as they weigh the ecological, economic, and health benefits of foodservice packaging.
