TBoise High garbageoday I speak with Boise High teacher Anna Daley and students Kaitlyn “Skippy” Lindholm and Karthick Mouli about sustainability initiatives and leadership at the school. One initiative that is bringing their community together around sustainability is a campus “Big Read” of the book “Garbology”. I’ll talk with my guests about how the book is engaging their community around the issues of consumption and waste in our society. We’ll also discuss the upcoming Boise High Sustainability Summit and their goal to bring either Bea Johnson from Zero Waste Home or Mary Crowley from Project Kaisei to the summit as a key note speaker. Read here for more information on that campaign.
