A new six-week lunch discussion series, “The 21 Day Plant-Based Experience,” is set to begin this March. The program, hosted by the Office of Sustainability in collaboration with campus partners, will feature brief presentations followed by discussions about the implications of plant-based diets with experts in personal and community health, nutrition, sustainability, ethics, faith, and farming. During the final three weeks of the series, participants will have the opportunity to follow a plant-based diet, with coaching and support.

Charged by our classmates with designing the sustainability strategy for the 5th and 25th Reunions, we decided to combine our efforts to maximize the positive impact.  We also collaborated closely with Princeton’s Office of Sustainability and student EcoReps to design and implement solutions.

The Princeton University Ecology Representative Program (EcoReps) was founded in 2004 and is hosted by the Office of Sustainability. The EcoReps support the mission of the Office of Sustainability by promoting the integration of Princeton’s sustainability goals into life on campus, with a focus on residential life; athletics; Move Out/In; Reunions and other events. Through their efforts, the EcoReps aim to increase sustainability awareness and behaviors among Princeton students.

Recyling at Reunions

More than 50 EcoReps teamed up to enhance recycling at Move Out and at Reunions 2016 for the seventh consecutive year. The students collected nearly 5,000 #5 and #6 cups at Reunions which were sent to be upcycled into products such as Adirondack chairs, toothbrushes, and other household items.
