Food waste makes up over 40% of the waste that ends up in the landfill. The aim of the resources in the WASTE WATCHERS Toolkit is to give students what they need to learn, and educate others about the importance of waste reduction and organic waste diversion as global sustainability issues.  

Be The Change Earth Alliance (BTCEA) has created the WASTE WATCHERS Toolkit to support student action to improve the waste diversion programs in their schools and empower youth led policy change at the district level.

As WASTE WATCHERS students will, using their school as a case study, look at the waste systems are already in place, evaluate their effectiveness, build a team, plan a project and implement improvements to waste systems.
