|Zero Waste Campus Toolkit
|September 11, 2019
This 26 page toolkit is intended to be used by colleges and universities as a guide to creating a Zero Waste Campus. This toolkit contains resources regarding the concept of Zero Waste, Zero Waste management practices and a sample Zero Waste campus pledge and model policy. Zero Waste is an important journey for college campuses to undertake as it is a vital component of a healthy future for generations to come.
Starting a campus Zero Waste program is an asset to a collegiate sustainability effort and an opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas production and create campus efficiencies. Whether you're an administrator or a student, starting this effort, requires a systematic approach. A full description on how to initiate this effort can be found at: http://zerowaste.uoregon.edu/Book/HTML/chapter_3.htm
The toolkit contains 10 Zero Waste Business Principles that are the basis for evaluating the commitment of companies to achieve Zero Waste. They include:
1. Commitment to the triple bottom line
