Only two more weeks remain in the national RecycleMania waste reduction and recycling competition!
Last week, Penn recycled 25.29% of campus waste. We currently stand in 8th place out of the 11 Ivy Plus schools, with a cumulative recycling rate of 24.30%. We are not far off our 30% goal for this year’s competition, but we will need everyone to reduce the amount of trash generated to help Penn move up in the standings.
To see the full Ivy Plus, City Six, and Pennsylvania standings, please visit the Green Campus Partnership website: www.upenn.edu/sustainability/recyclemania.html#rmstandings
Help Penn meet the goals of the Climate Action Plan and catch up to our Ivy Plus peers by recycling and reducing waste over these final weeks!
