Basically, you launch a "Litter Less Campaign" at your school by addressing Eco-Schools USA’s consumption and waste pathway and implementing through the seven step framework of the Eco-Schools program during the school year. For each of the seven steps you will need to take photos or video or in some other way record your progress and then log-in to the Wrigley's website and upload the information. The very cool thing is that schools all over the globe are participating in this project and uploading their information to the Wrigley's website, so you will be able to communicate, share information, successes and challenges with Eco-Schools in other countries.

You can tie the campaign to another event being held at your school. Or consider setting-up a booth in the cafeteria at lunch with flyers and information about the campaign.
At Round Elementary School in Manassas, VA, the campaign was officially launched at the school's open house. For their campaign the school has decided to rid their campus of plastic lunch bags. Every student at the school will receive a reusable storage container for their lunch.
