Welcome to the University of Oregon Campus Zero Waste Program. The Program was founded by students in 1991 and continues to be staffed by mostly student employees. In 2012, the Program took a leap to become the Campus Zero Waste Program. As the program began with recycling it has evolved to include reuse, waste reduction, composting and zero waste events. Thus, the Program has taken on a new path of zero waste.

Thanks for thinking zero waste and enjoy this website. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or comments:

Project Polar Bear
Project Polar Bear is a way for small teams of young people
and groups/classrooms to collectively make a big difference!
The bi-national contest challenges young leaders to develop community projects that reduce the
carbon dioxide load in the atmosphere.
especially those that engage and sustain community action.

Check out the UO "Don't Kill Polar Bears" section.
