The transition to an all-virtual environment in the summer of 2020 has provided the opportunity to record some of the events we have hosted online. We have compiled the recordings here for those who weren’t able to attend, or just wish to get a refresher.

Sustainable Living Series

The Sustainable Living Series is meant to provide simple and accessible tips to increase sustainability in our daily lives. We will present programs and resources available to the WashU community to reduce our carbon footprint, while often saving money and improving our health and our community’s.

Session 1: Waste – Hosted on September 17, 2020

The first of this series focuses on everything waste. Learn how to reduce waste, divert waste, and sort waste!

NOTE: the speaker of this session experienced some unstable connection during the event, so we apologize for the poor sound quality of the recording.
