The EPA measured the Plastic Waste that ended up in landfills in 2018 at about 27 millions tons. The same year, they measured Construction & Demolition Waste that ended up in landfills at about 145 million tons, with 90% of that number attributed to demolition.  That's nearly SIX TIMES the amount of waste, so why aren't we fighting building demolition as hard as we are plastic?

Demolishing and replacing three twelve story buildings rather than renovating them runs counter both to OU's push for sustainable building projects and student views of protecting the Earth.

Saving the planet takes more than switching to reusable straws. It takes standing up and holding big institutions accountable as well.

Join us in demanding OU #RENOVATE the Towers rather than send them to the landfill.  Together, we can make a difference.
