Aashna S. Shares Her Research About Food Waste

Sixth grader Aashna S. is the second student to be a "Guest Blogger" on Greentumble, a site dedicated to preserving the environment.
Dillan S. was the first student to be selected to be a Guest Blogger on the website. Like Dillan, Aashna delved into her topic of choice, "Food Waste," in her science class as part of the sixth-grade study on global issues, eco-footprints and sustainability. During her research on food waste, she began to develop a deep understanding of negative changes on the environment and economy. Aashna and her team created a unique "Cool Globe" project, which was presented to the entire Pegasus Community at the School's International Earth Day Celebration on March 22. After Aashna completed her persuasive essay on food waste in her English class, she decided to share her knowledge globally and submitted her essay to Greentumble.com. 

Aashna's essay entitled, "The Burning Problem," is now published on Greentumble.com.

"Our world is now producing more food than it ever has. Food waste reaching the landfills is a surprising problem, leading to global warming...People are the main cause of food waste." -Aashna S.

On June 12, Aashna's essay was also shared on Voice of OC, Orange County's Nonprofit Newsroom.
