Join the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) Thursday, October 13 for a Green Lunchroom Challenge Webinar, “Waste Reduction with SCARCE.” The webinar will be broadcast from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM Central, and will be recorded and posted to the Challenge web site for later viewing. Register online at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6855430088212534276.

School and Community Assistance for Recycling and Composting Education (SCARCE), is an environmental education and assistance organization based in DuPage County, IL. Kay McKeen, SCARCE Founder and Executive Director, and Erin Kennedy, Environmental Educator and LEED GA, will discuss resources and guidance available from SCARCE to help your school or district achieve food waste reduction and diversion goals.

Coordinated by ISTC with funding from US EPA Region 5, the Green Lunchroom Challenge is a voluntary pledge program for schools to improve the sustainability of their food service operations. By registering, participants are accepting the challenge to reduce and prevent food waste in their facilities. The Challenge involves suggested activities that range in complexity and commitment, to allow participants to best suit their situation, budget and available community resources. Participants are not required to complete activities, but with each activity that is completed successfully, they earn points and can be recognized as having achieved different levels of accomplishment. Learn more, and register your school or district, at www.greenlunchroom.org.

Leveraging NPPR's P2 Results Report

The P2Rx Centers, in collaboration with the National Pollution Prevention Roundtable (NPPR), have developed a press kit to publicize the Pollution Prevention Results report 2010-2012.

GLRPPR's Sector Resources give you direct access to pollution prevention resources, funding opportunities, and events in a particular industry sector or topic. See what's been added most recently. If you want to stay up-to-date about new additions, we also have an RSS feed New Sector Resources RSS Feed.

You can also sign up for our twice-weekly newsletter, which links to all new content on the web site.

See also LibGuides related to pollution prevention and sustainability, particularly the Pollution 101 LibGuide, designed especially for those new to P2 technical assistance.

Topic Hubs provide an in depth look at pollution prevention in a specific topic or industrial sector. GLRPPR has converted several of its Topic Hubs to LibGuides, which allowed for integration of some social features.

View the converted hubs, as well as other LibGuides related to pollution prevention and sustainability, in the University of Illinois' LibGuides Community.
