“Sustainability is a continuous effort integrating environmental, social, and economic goals through design, planning, and operational organization to meet current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The University is committed to incorporating sustainability into its teaching, research, and outreach and the operations that support them” (UMN It All Adds Up Website).

As students who are interested in solving global problems, we have identified ways in which our University can improve its sustainability efforts, lead a better future, and fulfill their goal to be a leader in sustainability:

Stop using plastic liners used in all bins that aren’t compost or trash.

The plastic liners in paper, glass and bottle recycling bins are unnecessary whilst contribute to the production and consumption of plastic materials. By replacing them with washable net bags, we can further contribute to the U by mitigating plastic waste.
