Recyclemania 2011!

Princeton was the highest ranking Ivy in the 2007 and 2008 Recyclemania competitions. But for two years straight, we have narrowly lost to Harvard! Let’s make our way to the top again in 2011!

The 2011 Recyclemania Tournament will run eight weeks- from Sunday, February 6th to Saturday, April 2nd.

Categories include:
– recycling rate
– waste minimization
– recycling totals (per capita)
– overall recycling totals
– targeted materials (like food service organics)

Please reduce, reuse, and recycle! Spread the word as well!

Drink Local!

“Water bottle-filling stations provide you with great-tasting, filtered water from local sources. Bottled water from hundreds–or even thousands–of miles away is expensive and perpetuates our reliance on fossil fuels. Using a refillable bottle saves both money and natural resources!”

Where can you find a Bottle-Filling Station?

-Residential College Laundry Rooms

-Residential College Fountains

-Residential College Common Kitchens

-Dining Halls
