This last Thursday, the 9th, we had collected and weighed our second Ort report, aside from the baseline in February. We collected 115 pounds of food waste, compared to our baseline which weighed in at around 76.5 pounds. It was also more waste than the previous week, which totaled in at 102 pounds.
Let’s try harder to cut down on leaving excess scraps by thinking about how much food we want and are able to eat. Being trayless in the dining hall helps reduce the amount of food students waste, and we aim to meet our goal to have under 50 pounds of waste. This amount was the minimum wasted from 2014, so we need to improve our habits and try again this week.
An Ort Report will be taken this Thursday, so keep your eyes peeled, and stay green!
