Reusable Plates of Boston

President Monaco hosted the second of three President’s Picnics on Monday, June 13th, at the Boston Campus. The annual Picnics bring together staff and faculty on each of Tufts’ campuses to celebrate community and another year of hard work — and is also one of the major zero-waste events held throughout the year.

As part of the zero waste campaign, attendees were encouraged to BYOP — Bring Your Own Plate (and other picnic necessities) — which allowed less reliance on disposable dishes, cutlery, and cups.

  

Condiments were served in large containers, rather than individual packets, to cut down on packaging waste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drinks were likewise served in bulk to reduce waste.

Recycling interns helped sort recycling and compost at special Zero Waste Stations. 17 bags of compost were collected, compared with only one of trash!

The event was catered by Corporate Chefs.

Attendees who brought their own dishes could also win special, sustainable prizes!

Attendees did a fantastic job helping us keep this event zero-waste. We hope everyone enjoyed the great food and company and can carry their sustainable picnic practices into the future!
