5 Ways to Stay Zero Waste at the President’s Picnic

President's Picnic Prep


We don’t know about you, but we’re getting pretty excited about the President Monaco’s annual summer celebrations! Each year after Commencement, the President’s Office hosts a picnic/ice cream social for staff, faculty, and students on each of the Tufts campuses.  As part of Tufts’ ongoing commitment to sustainability, the event on the Medford campus will be zero waste again this year. Efforts will also be made to reduce waste at the Boston and Grafton events.

Whether you are attending the event on the Boston, Grafton, or Medford campus, you can reduce your waste by planning ahead! We recommend that you BYOP – Bring Your Own (reusable) Placesetting (plate/bowl, utensils, etc.).  If you BYOP to any of the events, you’ll have the chance to win a prize from the Office of Sustainability.

The President’s Picnic

The picnic on the Medford/Somerville campus will take place on Wednesday, May 21, 2014, from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the President’s Lawn. The rain date is Thursday, May 22. All students and faculty are invited to a picnic hosted by the University President himself.

As part of Tufts’ ongoing commitment to campus sustainability, the picnic will once again be a zero-waste event, which means that everything used will be either recycled or composted. To minimize waste even further, we encourage those who can to BYOP – Bring Your Own (reusable) Place-setting (plate, cup/water bottle, fork). Stop by the Office of Sustainability’s table to get your picture taken with your reusable tableware and win a potted plant for your office (available for the first 10 groups of 5 of more)!

New to this year’s picnic will be a fair featuring some of the lesser known perks of being a Tufts employee.  Stop by to find out about some of the best deals and surprising benefits that will make your life easier and save you money!
