Boulder Housing Partners' Tim Beal and Jessica Robetor discuss the recent success of the Zero Waste Program at Kalmia. Through a partnership with Eco-Cycle, the City of Boulder, and Western Disposal, the Kalmia Community is now diverting 40% of total material from the landfill through both recycling and their newly instituted composting service.

Did you know that access to the internet is one of the key predictors of educational attainment and future income today?
Within our BHP community, 170 children do not have internet access at home. It will become increasingly difficult to close the achievement gap if homework becomes internet-based and our children go without accessible technology. The Boulder Valley School District knows this too, and that's why they are increasing the use of technology in the classroom and online access to homework, teachers and other resources.
