The students at Fruita 8/9 school in Colorado are making the steps to go green. The composting project at Fruita 8/9 school started on the Earth's birthday. We are taking food products left from lunch to turn into compost. The program will both save money for the school and will be more environmentally friendly. The food compost will reduce the amount of waste and energy we produce. However you can only compost certain things such as grains, egg shells and greens. You can not compost things like meat, bread, and milk.
