ReThink: Palestra Goes Zero-Waste

Green Campus Partnership outreach tabletop display
November 17, 2014

The Palestra is going to become a Zero-Waste facility during Penn’s basketball season, an initiative spearheaded by student athlete Eco-Reps and Facilities and Housekeeping in Athletics.  The team will be working to make almost all basketball games (men’s and women’s) zero-waste , with the goal of a permanent transition to the Palestra concourse including new bins, signage, and marketing materials.

Volunteers at the bins monitoring compost/recycling/trash stations. The  Zero-Waste initiative kicks off the weekend of Nov. 22nd.
