This webinar highlighted successful waste minimization efforts in college athletics and provided tools for launching similar programs where they don’t yet exist. Experts in the field featured a range of successful programs like the EPA’s competitive approach to sustainability through its “Game Day Challenge” and ASU’s internal commitment to materials management in athletic programs. Virginia Tech’s new and innovative waste reduction toolkit, which provides a national overview of collegiate efforts to minimize the environmental impact of athletic events, was also featured.
