Earth Team goes Down Town Oakland!
On October 3, 2017 Oakland LPS’ Earth Team headed to the Downtown Oakland Association office to meet with their representatives and discuss the waste issues the city is facing and the plans the city has to face those issues. The interns then hit the streets to conduct a litter survey and obtain specific information about the prominent sources of waste in the area and what might be the leading causes for those sources. Over the
next few weeks, interns will be developing educational materials and surveys to help get a sense of the awareness of the waste issue within the community, and to help provide knowledge to those who may not be fully aware of the impacts of waste on our environment.
