Zero Out on Plate Waste Part I 
and Bicycle Repair Expo

How much food waste does Union generate?
We found out by weighing the food waste in West dining during the lunch period.
On Tuesday during lunch, the average was .17 lbs wasted per person.
We can do better!

Andrew Parnes '17 is the head of the Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC), 
U-Sustain's newest action group.
He will be organizing events and fix it workshops as well as making 
u-locks and helmets available for rent in the library.
Let's make Union a safe and bike friendly campus!
