Description

This presentation is about Dishes for Earth, a program that is designed to reduce waste on McMaster's campus.

 

Dishes for Earth allows McMaster students and staff on campus to reduce waste while eating! Instead of using take-out containers offered at most on campus eateries they can take re-usable dishes/cutlery anywhere on campus and then deposit them into specified bins which are located throughout the campus. Bins are then collected and dishes/cutlery washed and ready for re-use. 2 If civilization has risen from the Stone Age, it can rise again from the Wastepaper Age 1

Dishes for Earth allows McMaster students and staff on campus to reduce waste while eating!

Instead of using take-out containers offered at most on campus eateries they can take re-usable dishes/cutlery anywhere on campus and then deposit them into specified bins which are located throughout the campus.

Bins are then collected and dishes/cutlery washed and ready for re-use.

Taking care of the environment is extraordinarily important. Dishes for Earth is an innovative program which strives to decrease waste so the McMaster community can do their part to protect the environment. The program works on the honor system- students, faculty and staff are trusted to return dishes/cutlery taken from the eateries to the correct bins. It is in collaboration with MacGreen (McMaster’s Environmental Club) Bins with clear labels will be conveniently located throughout campus. Volunteers from MacGreen as well as from Dishes for Earth will work in shifts to return dishes/cutlery to the appropriate eatery for cleaning and re-stocking. To ensure dishes/cutlery are being returned properly there will be a bi-weekly check of eateries inventory.

LEGEND Total Non-Residential Residential 7 Waste Disposal in Canada, 2004, 2006

The Problem: Styrofoam and other take-out containers from McMaster eateries are a popular and inexpensive options for students, faculty and staff. However they are not recyclable and create a significant amount of unnecessary waste and litter. Dishes for Earth Solution: By allowing dishes/cutlery from all eateries to be taken out, McMaster will reduce the cost of using disposable containers, and more importantly reduce the amount of non-recyclable waste created by the McMaster community.
