-as seen recently “In the News” in onCampus

As a new school year approaches, the statewide OSU Extension Sustainability Team has published Ten Tips for Packing Waste-Free Lunches, a new, easy-to-read guide to help families be more sustainable, save money, and reduce single-use items. The Sustainability Team plans to share this new resource with parents, schools, solid waste management districts, recycling outlets, and other organizations that promote sustainability. Laura Stanton, the family and consumer sciences educator who wrote the tip sheet, reminds people that making the small changes necessary to pack waste-free lunches, sustained over time, can lead to big and impactful results.
