Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

When we do not divert our waste from landfills, we are contributing to the poisoning and contamination of our groundwater, land, and air with toxic chemicals which often disproportionately affects many low-income communities of color. Making zero waste events familiar and accessible will help contribute to a larger campus cultural and behavioral shift regarding sustainability practices.
