2016 Housing Team - Week 5

by Mochi Li
Last’s week Earth Day Fair was successful for the Housing Team. We presented our catalog to the attending students and showcased the environmentally preferred products available at the Ackerman student store. The students also used some of the products to write what sustainability means to them and the habits they can eliminate to become more sustainable. With the conclusion of the Earth Day Fair, the team has shifted its focus to the two upcoming Lunch and Learns with UCLA Housing Staff and Residential Life Staff. We are framing the session as a training session to better reach the staff members. The Learn and Lunch will consist of two parts; an educational component on what sustainability means and UCLA’s goals of carbon neutrality and zero-waste by 2020 and our Green Office catalog. We are focusing on how to use the catalog, what it means, and why the staff should use it. We are beyond excited to finally present our final product and reach our main goal of educating the staff members of UCLA Housing and Hospitality Services.
