Watch the interview with Esmeralda and Jennifer below.

Esmeralda Argueta & Jennifer Almendarez are the EarthTeam Students of the Month for November 2013. Esmeralda & Jennifer are both seniors at Castlemont High School in Oakland, CA. They are part of a yearlong internship with EarthTeam called the "EnviroKnights" that are focused on waste reduction on their campus. They, along with their other EnviroKnights, have been conducting daily waste monitoring in their cafeteria in an effort to educate their peers on waste reduction. In addition, the EnviroKnights have recently been leading waste audits to other classes on campus to further waste education on campus. In November the EnviroKnights led two freshman classes through a waste audit and EarthTeam staff was lucky enough to attend and help out while watching these leaders in action.

We are inspired by the work and wisdom of these two young women and look forward to seeing their work and the work of their peers as the year progresses. Keep up the great work ladies!
