E-Star-Award-DC-2014Join us for our monthly EcoReps Lunch & Learn workshop featuring a free vegetarian lunch and locals making a difference in sustainability! To kickoff the spring series on Friday, Jan. 25th at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210, we'll hear from Executive Director Lissa McCracken and Speed School student engineer, Alex Beebe, of the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC).

Established in 1994, KPPC is a state-mandated technical assistance resource center. As part of the J.B. Speed School of Engineering at the University of Louisville, KPPC has the resources, expertise and experienced engineering and technical staff to help Kentucky’s businesses, industries and other organizations stay environmentally sustainable and competitive.

KPPC engineers work with clients to provide customized technical services that help lower operating costs by reducing waste and improving efficiency. KPPC’s on-site assessments have helped nearly 800 Kentucky businesses and organizations improve environmental performance and lower operating costs. At this EcoReps workshop, they will describe what they do and detail a project they are doing with distilleries.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoRepEco-Reps logos program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability.

This spring, we continue our series of in-person workshops each month on last Fridays at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210. Join us for lunch and bring your reusable plate, utensils, and cup to minimize waste! All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
