Zero-Waste Events

As part of UC San Diego's goal of zero waste by 2020, we are continuing to work to reduce single-use disposables at Scripps meetings and events. We recognize the challenges of catering to large numbers of people without using disposable products, but we have several options help you reduce your disposable footprint when you host events. Contact Allyson Long (a5long@ucsd.edu) to arrange any of the following:

REUSABLE DISHWARE SET

  • Dishware and mug-share set available for check-out (meetings up to 20 people. 48 hour notice required to reserve) 
  • Compost/recycling bins and signs for food events
  • Reusable champagne glasses at Surfside 
  • Mugshare boxes can be implemented in shared kitchens upon request.

Future additions: 

  • Dishware set for larger meetings
  • Dishwasher available to Scripps community for post-meeting clean-up
  • Sustainable catering options
