Zero Waste Game Day Spring 2014 (Completed)

Project History

Project Family

Description

The Climate Action Plan includes a commitment to adopt a Zero Waste Policy campus. Campus is working toward Zero Waste with the report done by Marcus Ricci last year, waste characterization audits through the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, and hiring a Zero Waste Coordinator under the Waste Management Coordinator, Tracy Osby.  However, ultimately the only way to really achieve Zero Waste is by getting behavior change in individuals.  To quickly communicate about these efforts and spread the word about our efforts, we would like to partner with the recently formed Division of Intercollegiate Athletics (DIA) green team to host a Zero Waste Event at the State Farm Center. We would like to start with a medium sized event, and we have begun discussions with representatives from the State Farm Center and the DIA green team.
