UT Arlington Reduces Waste
UT Arlington partners with EPA to reduce food waste
UT Arlington is among seven universities partnering with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce food waste as part of the national Food Recovery Challenge.
The goals of this voluntary program are to limit the 34 million tons of food wasted nationwide annually by reducing unnecessary consumption and increasing composting and donations to charity. By joining the Food Recovery Challenge, participating schools pledge to reduce food waste by five percent in one year.
The Office of Campus Sustainability set up the partnership with the EPA. Read more at reducing food waste.
