Waste Not 

click to enlarge kidsbeat1-1.jpg

By 2020, all Vermonters will be required by law to compost. It's John Powell's job to help Chittenden County kids and youth-focused institutions understand what that means. Powell coordinates School and Youth Outreach Programs for the Chittenden Solid Waste District. He gives free tours of the CSWD facilities and delivers presentations about recycling and composting to groups of young people all over the county. But, as he points out, kids often know all of that already. "It's a problem to actually educate the adults," he says. To that end, Powell offers free technical assistance to institutions that want to get greener. Right now, he's got summer camps in his sights. Know someone who runs one? Write down Powell's number before you recycle this paper.
