Planning a workplace event involving food? Go ZERO WASTE!

The next time you’re having a catered meal for a meeting, take a look at the “Zero-waste” vendors in America-To-Go.  You can spot these vendors by looking for a green marking in their listing (see image).  This means they’ve earned a zero-waste designation and are committed to reducing the total tonnage of waste generated at UVA 50% below 2014 amounts by 2035.

Check out the Office of Sustainability’s Zero Waste Event Guide for more information on minimizing waste at your next event.
