Sustainability

Here’s how we do our part to practice sustainable living.

Urban Gardening and Cistern

Students actively participate in Urban Gardening weekly, with instruction provided. Our campus houses a 275-gallon cistern that catches rain water to use in our Urban Garden (our cistern was installed by Cumberland River Compact).

Water-Bottle Free

Our campus has moved away from traditional plastic water bottles and now utilizes tanked spring water systems.

Compost

Compostable materials are collected throughout the day on campus, and are disposed into our compost, which then gets reintroduced back into our Urban Garden to continually cultivate growth.

Recycling

All classrooms routinely participate in recycling.

Just.Glass

We work with Just.Glass, a glass recycling program, to help reduce our glass waste. You can read more on them here.

Support Us

You can use Just.Glass in your own home! Sign up for $16.00/month for your household and your participation supports the Episcopal School of Nashville. Visit the link below to sign up!
