Students raised the Styrofoam tower representing LESS trays then are used in 1 day on campus. We also made a coconut veggie curry, salad, planted seedlings and more!

I am so impressed with the spirit of your community of learners! Way to go! At Laurel School in Ohio, we have recently become a trayless school. We are saving water and energy. Also, the children seem to waste less food because they can not over-load their trays. Some food for thought!

Thanks Audrey! What do they use at your school instead of Styrofoam trays? No trays at all???

I really enjoy how Farm King is helping our school become environmental and healthy by collecting styrofoam trays and by using reusable trays instead of styrofoam trays.

it is amazing how many trays are on that tower… it’s less than what we waste every school. Our average amount of styrofoam wasted every day is about 1,400 trays.
