Creativity Reflection 9: Sustainability Research

Since my group is trying to focus on MU campus and those who roam the campus as the targets for our recycling solution, I decided to check out what the MU Sustainability office had to offer. Our latest report is 3 years old, which I found sort of problematic since a lot has happened to the college population, what different areas of our campus look like, etc. in that time.

What I found most fascinating was how this RecycleMania competition was mentioned about us competing with other schools, but I have never heard about that in my 4 years here. It talked about getting different types of containers for events, with some of them being compost containers, which I knew existed because of when I worked with Summer Welcome and we used them for our biodegradable ice cream bowls and spoons.

Something else the site had was a sustainability top 10, but it didn’t seem to mostly include anyways to help with waste. One of them was the trail, which is more of a sustainable fun activity since it is outdoors and not using things that are harmful to the earth.

Overall, I wasn’t that impressed with the sustainability office and what they had to offer. I feel like the information their site has is not up to date and/or not publicized well enough to the student body. I hope our solution can help right this.

  1. Great research! have you reached out to anyone in the sustainability office to see how your project might contribute to the initiatives they are trying to accomplish? i think that there could be a lot that you have to offer them through your brainstorms and potential solutions.
