Lesson Plans

The Complete Package

Grades: Elementary (4-6)

Subject Area: Environmental Science, Math, Economics

Made Possible By: Foodservice Packaging Institute

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.
