On Wednesday, September 23, the Office of Sustainability will host the first Greenbag Lunch of the fall semester: To Recycle or Not to Recycle? The event will take place from 12:00 to 1:00 PM in the Alumni Center at 86 Wentworth Street.
While recycling is often presented as a solution to the global waste crisis, human behavior is one of the most influential aspects of diverting waste. In this round table, participants will discuss both the positive and negative social, economic, and environmental impacts of recycling and how Charleston is working to decrease the amount of waste sent to the landfill.
All events in the Greenbag Lunch Series are free and open to the public. As always, attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, but light and locally sourced snacks will be provided by GrowFood Carolina.
Dr. Calvin Blackwell (Chair, Economics)
