Millar Library is one of Portland State’s most popular study and hangout areas on campus. Every day, hundreds of students move through the building, not giving a second thought to the disposable materials they throw away while there.
But there is no “away.” It all ends up somewhere.
Stop by on December 11 between 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Park Blocks to watch us sort through the garbage generated by the PSU community. We will be pulling trash from the library dumpsters to see what the increased traffic of finals week does to our sustainability efforts, and displaying our findings at a tabling event when we’re done.
This is an excellent opportunity to have fun, meet new people, and learn about the importance of producing less trash. Hope to see you there!
