With just a few hours of your time, YOU can help make this year’s matriculation zero waste efforts successful. Please give us a hand! Two years ago was the first time food waste was composted during freshman orientation. Read about one intern’s take on the mixed results here. The more help we have, the more successful the process will be. Tufts Dining Services, The Facilities Department, the Tufts Institute of the Environment and the Office of Sustainability, in coordination with the Orientation Committee have worked together to design these meals to be low in waste generation and to be compost friendly (i.e., no plastic films to contaminate the compost). Click here to learn more about composting at Tufts.
