  1.  
  2. <ul><li>Dishes for Earth allows McMaster students and staff on campus to reduce waste while eating! </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of using take-out containers offered at most on campus eateries they can take re-usable dishes/cutlery anywhere on campus and then deposit them into specified bins which are located throughout the campus. </li></ul><ul><li>Bins are then collected and dishes/cutlery washed and ready for re-use. </li></ul>2 If civilization has risen from the Stone Age, it can rise again from the Wastepaper Age 1
  3. <ul><li>Taking care of the environment is extraordinarily important. </li></ul><ul><li>Dishes for Earth is an innovative program which strives to decrease waste so the McMaster community can do their part to protect the environment. </li></ul><ul><li>The program works on the honor system- students, faculty and staff are trusted to return dishes/cutlery taken from the eateries to the correct bins. </li></ul><ul><li>It is in collaboration with MacGreen (McMaster’s Environmental Club) </li></ul><ul><li>Bins with clear labels will be conveniently located throughout campus. </li></ul><ul><li>Volunteers from MacGreen as well as from Dishes for Earth will work in shifts to return dishes/cutlery to the appropriate eatery for cleaning and re-stocking. </li></ul><ul><li>To ensure dishes/cutlery are being returned properly there will be a bi-weekly check of eateries inventory. </li></ul>

  8. <ul><ul><li>The Problem: Styrofoam and other take-out containers from McMaster eateries are a popular and inexpensive options for students, faculty and staff. However they are not recyclable and create a significant amount of unnecessary waste and litter. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dishes for Earth Solution: By allowing dishes/cutlery from all eateries to be taken out, McMaster will reduce the cost of using disposable containers, and more importantly reduce the amount of non-recyclable waste created by the McMaster community. </li></ul></ul>
