The aim of the Biodegradables Campaign is to raise awareness in the Hunter community of the harmful effects of disposable plastics, and to gather petition signatures of students, faculty, and staff urging the Hunter cafeteria food vendor, AVI Fresh Foods, to implement biodegradbale cups, plates, and utensils in their next contract with Hunter College. This campaign hopes to help reduce Hunter’s waste stream, and to catalyze institutional as well as individual waste reduction practices in the Hunter community.
