Cedarvale has a zero food waste policy. As a result of our commitment to sustainability, we have been awarded Platinum Status by the TDSB EcoSchools Program this past year. Please help us to continue along the path to a more sustainable future by packing your child’s lunch and snack in reusable containers. We suggest you purchase a canteen for water or juice rather than purchase wasteful drink boxes, cans, and bottles. For food transport, reusable food containers are widely available as are specially designed lunch bags with individual food compartments. Reduce waste by refraining from purchasing individually wrapped treats.
There are NO garbage bins in the lunchroom so please refrain from sending garbage to school. It will be returned to you at the end of the day. The EcoSchool committee is also tracking student progress. We hope that you will assist us in reducing our school’s environmental footprint and embrace this opportunity to bring environmental education into your home.
