Once a semester, Cal Zero Waste hosts a road show event to showcase and promote environmentally preferred alternatives for common office supplies
At the roadshow, products that produce less waste than their counterparts or are made out of recycled content are showcased. 10-12 vendors are selected for each events, after all products beling displayed have been carefully vetted to ensure that they align with zero waste product standards. For example, Pilot’s B2P (Bottle to Pen) is a pen made out of recycled plastic water bottles, which means it is a #1 PET plastic and is readily recyclable. It is also refillable which allows for the continual use of the pen while only throwing away the empty ink.
During the event, samples of the products are distributed and building occupants are educated on waste reduction and why the selected products are environmentally preferred. Thus far, EPP Road Shows have been held at the Campus Shared Services Center, California Hall, Wurster Hall, the Haas School of Business, the Valley and Life Sciences Building (VLSB), Li Ka Shing, and Stanley Hall.
