Abstract Title

Re-Use-A-Bowl

Abstract

One of the biggest issues on college campuses are waste that is being put into landfills by students and faculty. This trash greatly damages our environment. As a solution, Re-use-a-bowl is a new, green way to get meals at Kent State University dining halls. Currently, students use cardboard takeout containers to get food. After finishing the food, students throw away containers in a trash can already full of other containers. Instead of using disposable cardboard boxes, students can use plastic containers and reuse them. The Re-use-a-bowl plastic containers are easily washable and will undoubtedly help the environment and the local Kent community. The Re-use-a-bowl containers will also greatly reduce trash at Kent State University and save thousands of dollars within the first year of switching.
