TerraCycle at Tisch’s Tower Cafe!!


Did you know that Tisch Library has set up a TerraCycle collection center in the Tower Cafe for patrons’ empty chip bags and foil-lined energy bar wrappers?  Well we have!  Tisch staff have been collecting for over 2 years and recently expanded, with the help of the Eco Reps, to include Tisch Library patrons.  Look for bins immediately on your right as you exit the Cafe.  Don’t forget to check out what TerraCycle is all about at their website.Image

Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe Collection at Tisch

The Tisch Sustainability Team is collecting all brands and sizes of used athletic shoes to send to Nike Reuse-a-Shoe, which repurposes shoes to make Nike Grind, a material that is used to create playing surfaces of all kinds. Please bring your tired, your useless, your yearning-to-be-out-of-your-house athletic shoes to the collection bin in the Tisch lobby between now and next Friday, Oct 19 at 5pm.

Boston Organics Office Fruit Box

Boston Organics is an awesome local company that delivers fresh organic produce to residences and homes in the Boston area.  They were kind enough to donate an office box of fruit for a special staff event at Tisch Library.  It was a huge success that was enjoyed by all.  Special thanks to Amy Levine for coordinating the donation and to Laura Walters, Associate Director for Teaching, Research, and Information Resources, for her in-house assistance.  Here is a picture of the fruit on display (there was nothing left at the end!!)



Signing up for Boston Organics is easy, check it out!  When I lived in Arlington I participated and produce day was always the best day!
