Klingenstein Day 9: Sustainability

Looking ahead in the schedule, I noticed that tomorrow we are going to be hearing from Gary Giberson, the Executive Chef at Lawrenceville school, and the Owner of Sustainable Fare.

The way that he is helping his school change to a more sustainable model makes me think about ways that my school might continue to be innovative in helping our students and faculty be mindful of our environmental impacts.

I’m particularly enthused about the way that they have set up the lunchroom disposal system. Below are some pictures of the food disposal/plate busing system for your perusal:

    Lawrenceville is on the top of their game in the sustainability world. I think that they have a full-time position on their faculty, focused solely on sustainability. Ah, we have so much to talk about when you get home!
