Weekly Updates for Zero Waste

Posted by Marya Ryan on April 28, 2019

Hi Pete and Shawn--

Zero waste activity for this past week was a conversation with Morgan about bringing asking the Green Labs Committee to weigh in on how to safely recycle gloves--and follow up with Kimberly-Clark. The committee will meet in the fall, and Sara Portillo, the Kimberly-Clark representative is aware that our efforts to enable greater lab participation are on hold until then.

I emailed her after my conversation with Morgan to let her know that engaging the committee appears to be our best path forward. Sara let me know that the University of Illinois is to receive a Right Cylce Greenovation award for its participation in the Right Cycle glove recycling program.

Best regards,

Marya Ryan
