Sustainability at Graspods

GrasPods is committed to sustainability. We aim to foster sustainability awareness in all students, post-docs and staff at our various locations. We strive to reduce waste and provide recycling options at our events and we encourage our members to adopt environmentally friendly modes of transportation such as biking, walking, and taking public transit to work.

We are constantly looking for new ideas for sustainability. Have an idea or suggestion about how we can improve our practices? E-mail the sustainability coordinator Katy at kdixon@bccrc.ca.
