Name of the campaign:
A brief description of the campaign:
Campaign designed at reducing waste on campus. The campaign lasts one week during which student-volunteers talk to their peers about food waste and recycling. Messages on flyers and on the college's electronic portal are also edited and added daily. Student-volunteers also go in the campus dining hall and weigh food waste at every meal during and after campaign.
A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:
Food waste reduction observed because the dining hall has reduced their food purchase without reducing the number of customers and a recycling increase post campaign were recorded.

We consistently have a full rummage room, an active intern, and divert nearly one ton of waste from landfills. We consistently have student body interest with 60+ students entering the rummage room weekly.
