PEP brightens up SPA environment

People for Environmental Protection President Charlotte Hughes composts a piece of lettuce in the US cafeteria.

Upper School student group People for Environmental Protection are looking to rev up the school’s composting. Starting next week, the trash cans in the lunchroom will have signs directing students what to compost and what to throw out. “We are working on improving the composting awareness,” said PEP President Charlotte Hughes.

The group will make the signs later this week and will make an announcement at Friday’s assembly. Instead of a lengthy list of what one can and cannot compost, PEP decided to draw pictures to show the process of composting. “Most people don’t want to read signs,” Hughes said. “I think putting the actual items [on the signs] will help them do the right thing.”
