Kompost Kids Bay View Bash Sustainability Media Intern

Help Create Milwaukee's First Free and  Public “Zero Waste” Event

Kompost Kids Inc. works with the Bay View Bash in order to make this volunteer-organized, free, and public event as sustainable as possible. In 2012, we began to collect all organic and food waste from the event, in addition to recycling. Each year we develop new tools and methods to reduce waste, with the ultimate goal of creating Milwaukee’s first public “Zero Waste” event.
