A MISSION FOR ZERO WASTE

The Zero Heroes program inspires students as zero waste superheroes to explore our garbage predicament and change their families’ waste habits!

Program Overview

Module 1 -

Operation Garbage Watch

The adventure begins! Why is garbage a problem? What brings us joy that isn’t about stuff? First mission assignment!

Module 2 -

Operation Love Food, Hate Waste

Why and how do we waste perfectly good food? Calculate the relative value of the food families waste. Learn about an Indigenous community with a huge recycling centre in Arizona, and the principle of using every part of what is harvested. Mission 2: Reduce food waste at home.

Module 3 -

Operation Food Scraps

Composting and food scraps: why bother? Play a Sorting Game and write a rap about food scraps. Learn about the thousands-of-years-old practice of composting from an Indigenous community in Arizona. Get Mission 3: use your food scraps bin!

Module 4 -

Operation Waste-Free Lunch

What is packaging and what problems does it cause? Analyse today’s lunch. Use math to learn about collective impact. Discover how the ancestral Pueblo used nature’s principals to farm in the desert. Make a poster and get Mission 4: have a waste-free lunch.

Module 5 -

Operation Buy Smart

Now that we know all this, how can we buy smarter? Brainstorm solutions, create buy-smart guidelines, create skits about impulse shopping, and get Mission 5: teach your families to buy smart!

Module 6 -

Operation Green Cycle

Designing following nature’s design. Learning about biomimicry: how can we design like nature does? Learn about making houses from natural materials, from the Pueblo people. Invent a product that uses biomimicry. Through the art of your choice, share your product with the class.
