This week Sustainable Life Club had collected and measured a total of 77.4 pounds of food waste for the Ort Report. Last week we had a startling amount of 55.8 pounds, 20 pounds less than this week. Hopefully week four measurements will help students and faculty at Williston aim to get around 55.8 pounds or less. Overall, the average of food waste for the past five weeks have averaged to 74.64 pounds. The first week had measured around 98 pounds, so the slope is continuing on a decreasing slant (see graph).
Although Ort Report is succeeding in helping students realize their impact on the environment through their food waste on Mondays, the measurements are inconsistent. The goal of the Ort Report is to help students be aware of their impact even when measurements are not taken throughout the week and try to create a consistent habits for students and faculty. Hopefully, over the last weeks of the Second Trimester, the average will continue to lower as we become more environmentally conscious, including days beyond Monday.
