Illinois' Zero Waste movement got a boost this week when local NPR station WBEZ 91.5FM featured two engaging radio stories. SGA's zero waste program manager, Jennifer Nelson, was featured in both segments. The first story, which ran on Monday, June 2, 2014 during the local Afternoon Shift program and the national All Things Considered program explored our food scrap composting pilot in Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
