Watch the video of our informative and engaging webinar Ditching Disposables: Dish Washing and Dish Machines in K-12 Schools. This webinar explains some of the technical issues around bringing in a new washing system to a school site, a deep dive into an elementary school case study of reusables and how it led to state legislation (namely CA SB 1255), and also how schools can interface with dishware as a service (DaaS) and mobile dish machines. CEH is hosting Ditching Disposable webinars to encourage schools to move away from purchasing toxic disposable food ware items for youths.

Learn more about healthy foodware in schools from our toolkit.
