• Conservation efforts across campus applauded by environmental group

    National Wildlife Federation Campus Environment reportThe results on the field last night weren’t quite what Bear fans hoped for, but at least in the concourses, things went a little better. As part of Baylor’s efforts to continue getting greener, nearly 100 recycling bins were added all over Floyd Casey Stadium — in the stands, on the concourses, in the skyboxes, even in the locker rooms — to collect as many cans and bottles as possible.

    According to the Waco Tribune-Herald, Baylor hopes to be able to collect at least half of the bottles sold, and they’re going about it with vigor. The University is working with food service provider Aramark to reduce food waste and water use so that all parts of Baylor can be better stewards of the resources we’ve been given.

    Additional recycling bins are being deployed all around campus, following up on last year’s roll out of bins in every residence hall. All of these efforts have earned Baylor recognition from the National Wildwife Federation,  which cited the University’s sustainability program in their Campus Environmental 2008 Report Card.

    Sic ’em, Baylor recyclers!
