UC San Diego Sustainability would like to congratulate UCSD’s The Zone for being the most recent office to be certified through its Green Office Certification Program!
The office was initially certified in 2013 and was just recently recertified, receiving a grade of Silver. The Zone goes “cupless” every other month, and even when providing cups utilizes biodegradable ones. They plan on going completely cupless next year to motivate the students who utilize the space to use their own reusable water bottles. The Zone has also partnered with Roger’s Garden to begin composting its tea leaves and filters to reduce its waste even more and give back to the community. Shoutout to The Zone and all of its employees for continuing to help the campus and students while also working to help the environment!
