GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - As KARE 11 nears the end of the Great Green Challenge, newsroom staff says they have learned a lot in the past 10 weeks.
Clearly, there is still room for improvement, but many at KARE 11 have made some big changes.
The biggest success has been composting. The buckets are almost always full and it's rare to see a banana peel in the garbage can.
The least successful challenge has been cutting down on paper usage. The station is still working on the transition to digital scripts, but progress is slow and this aspect of the Great Green Challenge is still a work in progress.
