How You Can Help
Sort it Out
UBC aspires to be a “Zero Waste” campus where all unwanted items are treated as reusable resources. You can make a difference by using Sort it Out stations to sort food scraps and recyclables.
Choose Low Carbon Foods
Meat production and food transportation are major contributors to climate change. Consider meat-free meals, don’t waste food and buy local wherever possible.
