Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

With exponential rates of population growth and increasing rates consumption, waste management is quickly becoming a global priority. But how do we move beyond just managing our waste? How do we make our consumption practices less wasteful and more sustainable? In an effort to reduce reuse, recycle and reach UCSC's goal of Zero Waste by 2020, the Zero Waste Team developed, implements and manages innovative projects to minimize wasteful consumption and divert waste from our local landfill.
