Yale’s solid waste sustainability goal
Among other “sustainability” goals, Yale is committed to reducing its solid waste by 25%, and increasing its recycling rate by 25%, by 2013. The Yale Office of Sustainability has embarked on an educational campaign which is informative and fun. See some of the recent campaign posters here and here.
Not surprisingly, F&ES students are very involved with sustainability activities on-campus, and we hope that you are also passionate about these issues. You and/or your employer may already be doing some of these things. If not, try proposing some ideas, especially if you can tie it to reduced costs and increased benefits for individual employees and the company’s bottom line.
