ReThinking Your Waste

With less than 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. uses 33% of the world’s paper, 25% of the world’s oil, 23% of the coal, 27% of the aluminum, 19% of the copper, and is responsible for a full 50% of the world’s solid waste –www.sierraclub.org

There are so many ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle your waste--many more than we mention here. If you have any great ideas to include feel free to contact us so we can pass the word along!

In the meantime do your part to help the University achieve its stated goal of recycling 50% of its solid waste stream!
