Zero Waste

Join the EcoReps in Zero Waste Week • Today, Dec. 5, WPI’s EcoReps will be in the Rubin Campus Center between 10am and 2pm handing out Ziploc bags.  The goal: to be aware of the waste we generate and produce as little as possible during this time.
December 05, 2012

Here’s how it works: For one week, place all the waste you generate (excluding compost/recyclables) into the bag. On Thursday, Dec. 12, bring the bag back to the Rubin Campus Center between 10am and 2pm to weigh the waste you’ve generated.

Comparisons will be held between the average waste submitted to the average amount of waste generated in a week to quantify savings. All participants in the challenge who bring their bags back at the end of the week will be entered into a raffle to win a prize.
