Tigers Recycle!
 Each month we bring you a simple recycling tip to help reduce contamination in the recycling bins on campus.

This month's tip: Plastic bags can not be recycled in general recycling. Instead, recycle them at the U-Store in designated containers. And remember to say "no thank you" to plastic bags and bring a reusable bag when shopping.

Princeton's Sustainability Ambassadors play a vital role in the University’s sustainability efforts. Each fall, staff from across campus volunteer to participate in a one-year collaborative training program, focused on Princeton's sustainability goals and progress, and opportunities to further integrate sustainability practices at work and at home. Sustainability Ambassadors subsequently serve as sustainability representatives in their home departments or offices and in the wider community.

Food Choices: Using some of the latest ideas in behavioral science, a Princeton senior studies how subtle signals during meal time can lead to more sustainable eating

by Jared Flescher

The choices that people collectively make at dinner time—more burger, or more broccoli?—will impact the future of our warming planet. That’s because red meat consumption is widely recognized as a significant driver of a range of environmental woes, from climate change to deforestation and biodiversity loss.

But what could possibly encourage a more sustainable diet in a meat-loving country like the United States? As part of her senior thesis, Princeton student Cecelia Shang ’18 decided to test whether certain behavioral science-informed “nudges” at the dining hall might prove useful.
