  2. DFA - scheduling a project update meeting

    Associated Project(s): 

    Hi Morgan, 

    The past couple of weeks we've made progress interviewing and gathering insights for the Plastic Film Waste Project. We are now seeking advice and want to schedule a meeting to give you further updates. What dates and when would you be available to meet? Thank you so much for helping out on this project and we look forward to meeting up with you soon!

     

    Thank you, 

    Elisa

  3. DFA - Project update

    Associated Project(s): 

    Thanks for the introduction, Rajee.

     

    Hi Morgan, I'm a Freshmen here at University of Illinois Champaign Urbana. This is my first time participating in an organization like Design For America and I can't wait to see the process and outcome of our project. All of your help for our community outreach is greatly appreciated and I'm excited to work with you!

     

    Thank you so much,

    Elisa 

  4. Plastic Film DFA Project Update

    Associated Project(s): 

    Via Rajee Shah, some project updates on the Plastic Film DFA can be found below!

    First, our team did not get the Nationals Project with P&G; however, we still intend to take the next few months to tackle the plastic film recycling challenge. Using the information and insights that you provided by Morgan White, we have been able to establish a list of community organizations and members we would like to reach out to. We also spoke with County Market, only to find that they actually just discard their plastic bags in the regular dumpsters despite being listed as official bag collectors on the Champaign website. Thus, we are still looking for viable avenues to gather more information before proceeding with the project.

    Hi Morgan,Thank you for taking the time to meet with me a few weeks ago! Since we last spoke, we have hit a few bumps in the road!

If you would be able to provide us with any potential contacts that we could reach out to, we would really appreciate it!Finally, I would like to introduce you to Elisa, who will be our team's point of contact with community partners. She will be taking over communication with you.Thank you again for all of your help! Please let us know if you have any further questions, or if there’s any other information we can provide.

  6. DFA - request for advisor

    Associated Project(s): 

    Hi Morgan, 

     

    I hope your week is going well! I am with a team from Design for America, a student-run organization on campus, and we are working on a project with P&G to help citizens recycle plastic film more responsibly in our local communities. 

     

    For the project, we are required to work with a faculty advisor to help guide us through the research phase. While more involvement is more than welcome, we only ask to meet 3-4 times throughout the semester. 

     

    Your background in campus sustainability efforts and experience as Director of Sustainability at F&S is really exciting and would be an amazing perspective to add to our project. 

     

    We would love to hear about your work and any insights you might have, even if you are unavailable to work with us as a faculty advisor! Please let me know when would be a good time to chat this week! 

     

    Thanks,

    Rajee
