Single-Use Plastics & Executive Order 77 | Oct 21, 2021 | 12-1pm | Zoom
October 2021 Speakers

W&M has been reducing the purchase and use of single-use plastics for some time as part of sustainability efforts. Governor Northam's Executive Order 77, focused on eliminating certain types of single-use plastics and styrofoam, was announced in spring of 2021 and aligns well with our sustainability plans and goals. Dave Zoll, the sourcing analyst with the Procurement Services Office, and Eden Harris, the Associate Director of Marketing, Administration and Licensing at Auxiliary Services will be speaking on the matter. Learn about the items being reduced, where to find alternatives, and plans for the future.
