The Sustainability Initiative runs, supports, and promotes events throughout the school-year. We are eager to support the efforts of MIT faculty, students, and alumni, so if you have an event you would like to showcase on our website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also promote a small number of events outside of MIT each year that are of high interest and value to our constituencies; if you are running an event that we should know about, please contact email@example.com.

Kickoff Sustainability Initiative Lunch Series of the Year
Tuesday August 23
9AM-12PM E62 Loading Doc
MIT Sloan/E62 Recycling & Waste Audit
MIT Sloan/E62 Recycling & Waste AuditE62 Loading Doc –
Ever wonder if your plastic water bottles should be emptied before you recycle them? Or if that greasy pizza box is too contaminated, and just has to go in the trash? Do you think about how much trash you consume, and what happens to it when you throw it away? Here’s your opportunity to look smart in front of your new classmates as they hover in-between the compost and the recycling bin and ask “which one should I use?”. Join the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative and the MIT Office of Sustainability to help sort and weigh E62’a waste and collect data to improve overall campus sustainability efforts. We will provide you with gloves to keep your hands clean and Tyvek jumpsuits to keep your clothes clean (optional). We will be doing the sorting outside near the loading dock - we suggest you wear sun screen and/or a hat.
