When did you start volunteering with the Waste Watchers?
What has been your favorite project or event that the Waste Watchers have been involved in?
“Spin to Win” and “Got a Mug? Get FREE Coffee!”
What keeps you volunteering with the Waste Watchers?
I really like what they are centered around (waste reduction) and I like that they are so involved on campus. There is always something going on, some kind of campaign or event or competition and it’s all for a good cause. It feels good to volunteer some of my time to help educate my community in creating a healthier planet.
What would you like to see the Waste Watchers do in the future?
I would love for them to find a way to get involved in sporting events. I know it’s fairly difficult but it would be amazing outreach. Hopefully something can work out in the future.
What is one way you reduce waste in your everyday life?
I try to use resuable items as much as I can. I bring my own cup for to-go drinks and I always refuse a bag – plastic or not. I also just started regularly composting and that takes away a lot of waste.
