UCLA and Athens Services have been zero waste partners since 2008. During that time, the two organizations have formed a successful partnership with the goal of landfill avoidance. Recently, they collaborated on the production of an educational video to promote the importance of UCLA’s source-separation waste program. The video also demonstrates the partnership between UCLA and Athens.
“As longstanding partners with Athens Services, we are very excited to release this video showing our community where their waste goes and highlighting the importance of proper waste sorting,” said UCLA Zero Waste Manager, Kikei Wong. “By educating our fellow Bruins and beyond we can provide foundational knowledge that will lead to long-standing, sustainable behavior change.”
“We worked closely with the UCLA Recycling Team of staff and students to get their ideas and recommendation on what they expected to see in this video. The Athens team did a great job in gathering all this information and transforming it into a video. I am so proud of what we have done,” said Jennifer Cilloniz, Director of Program Compliance & Outreach.
This is just a small example of what a great partnership can accomplish, especially in the realm of sustainability. UCLA and Athens will continue collaborating on projects that aim to reduce waste, increase recycling, and promote environmental stewardship on campus and in the community.
