Sports Facilities & ICA Host the First Zero Waste Basketball Game 


The goal for the zero waste event was to create excitement on campus about zero waste, that it is a goal for the campus to not send any trash to the landfill by the year 2020, and to collect data through the post-game trash audit to help identify a current baseline to create goals and strategies to get us to zero waste by 2020.  Volunteers served as Green Goalies to help attendees with proper waste disposal and also participated in a waste audit.
