News from Green Government Tennessee:
Food Waste Awareness Week: During the week of April 4-9, 2022 the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation is hosting Food Waste Awareness Week. The goal of the event is to highlight issues associated with food waste and to inspire Tennesseans to do their part in helping eliminate food waste.
The Campus Race to Zero Waste (formerly RecycleMania) is a friendly competition amongst higher education institutions across the US and Canada that galvanizes the student body to get involved with sustainability efforts. This year there are three universities in Tennessee participating: Austin Peay, UT Knoxville, and UT Martin. In addition to the competition, the event provides tools to help advance campus recycling and waste reduction efforts as well as planning resources and activity ideas. It is an opportunity for schools to reduce waste and decrease their environmental footprint as well as benchmark their waste minimization and recycling efforts against other campuses. For more information and helpful resources, visit https://recyclemania.org/.
