Welcoming Back Zero Waste October
This Fall 2021, we are continuing this tradition to celebrate zero waste during the month of October. We are calling on the campus community to join us in celebrating, highlighting and achieving zero waste through a diverse series of events and gatherings; the goal is to spread awareness about reducing overall campus waste and provide students with the tools and knowledge to do so.
As part of Zero Waste October, we will also be collaborating with SERC to support Climate Justice Week to recognize efforts on-campus and beyond and advocate for inclusive, equitable paths towards a racially, environmentally, and socially just future.
