The Office of Sustainability would like to wish you and your loved ones a Ramadan Kareem! During this month, we all practice mindfulness, and self-reflection to make lasting changes. When reflecting on our actions and behavior, we should also consider our treatment of nature and our planet and use this as an opportunity to consider changes in our habits to better impact the earth. Furthermore, during this month, as we gather with our loved ones for iftar and suhoor meals, don't forget to be conscious of your plastic and food waste!
