Due to generous donations, ingenuity, and after hours of tweaking the settings, we finally have a dream come true. Three printers running at once!

With Handprinting, we keep track of the positive impacts that we cause to happen - and focus on the good environmental choices that we make.
It is a new system that tallies the good
we do for the planet!
At WES, the data shows that we are producing about 47 pounds of trash (destined for a landfill) per day, and around 17 pounds of recycling. We are also producing about 35 pounds of compost per day. Our goal is to reduce the weight of our trash, and increase the amount of recycling or composting that we do each day.
Gerry weighs our trash and recycling each day. The cafe staff weighs all our compost. Sustainable Woodstock and Farm to School helped us purchase scales and compost buckets for classrooms.
