Each year the Sustainability Committee organizes and hosts various on-campus events designed to promote and support sustainability at the Kendall Campus. Among these events are the committee’s signature Empty Bowls and Recycled Garden annual fundraisers, benefitting the Kendall Campus Food Pantry. Additionally, the committee hosts campus cleanup events and works in collaboration with other Kendall Campus committees to co-host additional sustainability-related events and activities. Here we will soon share information about the committee’s events and activities for the 2022-23 academic year.
