As we approach the end of 2018, the JCU Sustainability Committee wishes to poll University constituents for examples of sustainability initiatives in their own areas, e.g., Staff Council hosted a zero-waste soup luncheon in January 2018; Grasselli Library diverted of several tons of old books and journals in July to pulp recycling rather than to the landfill. Also, we heard about a student employee-led initiative to make “no paper receipt” the default on book check-outs.
We want to hear from you, about your individual or department/divisional sustainable events and efforts in 2018. These will be compiled and published in our annual report, slated for late January.
Send your stories and successes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
