Campus Race to Zero Waste 2024: February’s Calendar of Events

“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”
– Robert Swan

Temple University’s Office of Sustainability is thrilled to present our February events and this year’s Campus Race to Zero Waste campaign. Join us in sowing the seeds of change and nurturing a more eco-friendly campus.

Campus Race to Zero Waste is a sustainability competition in which Temple University goes head-to-head against schools across the country to see who can divert the most waste from landfills.
