Art Gallery Exhibit
The exhibit is on view January 30 – May 18, 2014 in the Tisch Family Gallery,

Tufts Eco-Reps and the Office of Sustainability are once again putting the Tufts community to the test with the Zero Waste Challenge! How much trash do YOU generate in one week? Maybe you’ll think twice about your consumption after giving this a try!
Tisch Sustainability is happy to help out by providing two additional pick-up locations for your plastic bags, stickers and other supplies needed to take part (or you can use your own – details at the link posted above). Stop by the Tisch Library circulation desk or the Lilly Music Library starting Tuesday* to get everything you need to put yourself up to the challenge!
(*or perhaps as early as Monday – take a look if you happen to be in either spot)
Did we mention there are prizes?! Good luck!
We are holding an event for Tisch Staff
