Congratulations! We are finally resuming face-to-face classes back on campus. The Office Of Sustainability welcomes the students and wishes them a fresh start at AUC. The Office is finally going to get back to its rituals of on-ground events along with a new collaboration that the Office is proud to announce with Nestle (Find out more in "Today's Topic"). Reminder, we still need to practice the key strategies to protect ourselves and each other. Physical distancing should be maintained at all times, and the mask remains mandatory for everyone on the AUC campus at all times unless you are alone. This will be the first issue of the SustainableAUC newsletter for this academic year, therefore stay tuned for upcoming newsletters during this semester! 
As promised in our previous newsletter, we will highlight a sustainable resolution for you to attempt to follow every month. In February, we challenge you to attempt to recycle on campus more! Try the new Nestle plastic bottle recycling machine on campus to earn points and free Nestle pure products. Find out more below!
1. While printing, try to print double-sided. 
2. Use the recycling bins appropriately. (tip: throw plastic water bottles in the plastic recycling bin, cans in the cans recycling bin, and lastly anything else in the trash bin.)
3. Replace plastic cups, cutlery, and bags with reusable alternatives.
4. Carpool or use the bus: Check out AUC’s Carpooling Facebook group chat. This is a great opportunity to reduce your carbon footprint and meet new people in your area! (tip: AUC bus service offer 13 routes, check out the bus schedule: )
