Committees & Work Groups
Break Free From Plastics Work Group
ESF signed the Post Landfill Action Network's Break Free From Plastics Pledge in February 2020. This Pledge signals the College's commitment to shift away from disposable, single use plastics to the greatest extent possible. The Break Free From Plastics Work Group was formed in November 2020 and is comprised of faculty, staff and students.
More Info - Break Free From Plastic
This Committee meets on an as needed basis. In its first meeting, the group created an inventory of non-essential, non-compostable, single use disposable plastics that are currently used on campus. Members of the working group will systematically identify items that can be removed from campus or replaced (with more durable items). If source reduction is not possible at this time, efforts will be made to properly manage materials that have a market beyond landfill/incineration.
Check out ESF's Path to Zero Waste program for more information about our lofty materials management goals! Email Sue Fassler (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to add a single use plastic to the target list for removal/replacement.

Bike Safety Committee
The Bike Safety Committee is led by Dr. Melissa Fierke and has been instrumental in improving bike infrastructure and safety on campus and in the local community.
