Did you know that if each student, faculty member and staff member used 15 fewer plastic bags a month, 1 million fewer plastic bags would end up in the landfill each year? In honor of Environmental Day 2018 and Earth Day 2018, AUS Sustainability will be giving away reusable AUS-branded canvas bags to encourage everyone to end plastic pollution. We are challenging students, faculty and staff to refuse plastic bags at the grocery store and other shopping outlets. It is an easy action that everyone can do to reduce the number of plastic bags in the landfills. Let’s do our part.
