We’ve seen a few examples of Disney’s mission to become more eco-friendly poppin’ up in the parks, from cool new trash cans to compostable plastic cheese (!!) containers.

Did you know that Disney’s Animal Kingdom is currently celebrating Earth Month? From specialty snacks and sips and even activities, the extra fun is lasting throughout all of April!

And we’ve even spotted special trash cans in the parks for compost waste!
