Urban Green Lab believes education leads to action, especially in reducing wasted food in our cities. In 2023, we teamed up with the Posner Foundation of Pittsburgh to create a series of videos about how Urban Green Lab uniquely delivers education on sustainable food consumption in classrooms, households, and workplaces. To supplement those videos, we also created a series of toolkits in collaboration with the Environmental Law Institute full of resources you can use every day as an educator, a professional, or a family member. Read more below about our experience educating on food waste and how the resources can be used.
