2 Go Trayless Benefits of going “Trayless” save thousands of gallons of water necessary for cleaning save energy associated with cleaning change behavioral habits: possibility to decrease food waste by as much as 50% Current Dining Halls: 6th will be trayless BARH and Sage present opportunities to become traylesss Commons, largest dining halls, presents large problems Conveyor Belt not fitted to work without trays Plate’s design not easy to carry with food Benefits of going “Trayless” save thousands of gallons of water necessary for cleaning save energy associated with cleaning change behavioral habits: possibility to decrease food waste by as much as 50% Current Dining Halls: 6th will be trayless BARH and Sage present opportunities to become traylesss Commons, largest dining halls, presents large problems Conveyor Belt not fitted to work without trays Plate’s design not easy to carry with food

3 Go Trayless “Tray-less Tuesday” failed because: Initiative was introduced in the middle of year when people’s habits are well- formed Benefits not clearly explained to students Initiative sponsored from Sodexo and down to students So we need to CHANGE THE MINDSET by: Introduce initiative to Freshman at SO/NRB in order to change the mindset of incoming students before given the chance to form habits A new initiative must be student driven, on a voluntary basis- grassroots Benefits must be clearly demonstrated to students expected to participate Technical fix to conveyor belt “Tray-less Tuesday” failed because: Initiative was introduced in the middle of year when people’s habits are well- formed Benefits not clearly explained to students Initiative sponsored from Sodexo and down to students So we need to CHANGE THE MINDSET by: Introduce initiative to Freshman at SO/NRB in order to change the mindset of incoming students before given the chance to form habits A new initiative must be student driven, on a voluntary basis- grassroots Benefits must be clearly demonstrated to students expected to participate Technical fix to conveyor belt CostImplementation Time FramePayback PeriodEnve ImpactCultural ImpactThe WhoImpact Area NSSHHExistingWaste

7 Design Brief Data Base Real world problems relating to sustainability can be submitted May be pre recommended by a task force for implementation on campus Classes could pick them up as projects, competing or collaborating to create an implementable idea Example classes include IED, EMAC, DMS, PDI, & Arch.

8 Designs would be presented to the submitters (Clients) Satisfactory designs would be implemented/beta tested This would help professors plan classes while incorporating sustainability into a wider curriculum Designs would be presented to the submitters (Clients) Satisfactory designs would be implemented/beta tested This would help professors plan classes while incorporating sustainability into a wider curriculum CostImplementation Time FramePayback PeriodEnve ImpactCultural ImpactThe WhoImpact Area LSN/ALMVolunteersEducation Design Brief Data Base

9 Undeveloped Ideas: Remove paper towels by switching to hand dryers   Examine cost of implementation and operation-   Dycon Blowers- filter air and save net energy   Possible use for paper towel waste? Occupancy Lighting Sensors- reduction of focus lighting   Private vs. Public areas, eliminates human error and forgetfulness   Identify essential vs. unnecessary lights and act. Winterize buildings   Reduce energy loss and costs   Double-paned windows, storm windows, Weather Strips CostImplementation Time FramePayback PeriodEnve ImpactCultural ImpactThe WhoImpact Area HMMHMConsultantEnergy CostImplementation Time FramePayback PeriodEnve ImpactCultural ImpactThe WhoImpact Area HMLMLExistingFacilities
