On Friday, October 14th, thirty-seven individuals were honored for their efforts in promoting sustainability in both belief and practice. These award winners were chosen on a basis of using a triple bottom-line approach to problems and issues. They have also demonstrated that they support both in word and deed, and can be looked to as leaders in sustainability.

Eve Ensler: Security
In October, GVSU's Meijer Holland Campus launched two new initiatives to eliminate unnecessary waste on campus. Part of this was an organized student and staff dumpster dive. In addition, trash bins were removed from offices and classrooms to make individuals more conscience of their waste habits.
Concerning the new initiatives, Lisa Miller, director of the Holland Campus, said: “The zero-waste initiative reflects Grand Valley’s commitment to sustainability. The project has been well received so far, and people who have initial concerns quickly recognize the importance of lowering the amount of recyclable waste that ends up in landfills.
