Towson's Efforts to Go Green

Every Tuesday in the dining halls on campus, Towson promotes their "Go Green" efforts by holding the "Trayless Tuesdays" program. The Glen Marketplace and Newell Dining Hall go trayless and collect wasted food to decrease the energy and water used to clean trays, encourage healthier eating habits and of course, to reduce food waste.

Potential Sources: Students eating at the dining hall on Tuesday, students that eat at the dining halls everyday (to get their feelings on "Trayless Tuesdays"), staff members that work in the dining halls and teachers that eat lunch in the dining halls.

Potential Questions:
  • Do you think that "Trayless Tuesday" really helps improve Towson's efforts to Go Green? If so, how? And if not, why?
  • Do you like "Trayless Tuesday"? Why or why not?
  • How do you feel about the wasted food collected?
  • How do you think "Trayless Tuesday" affects the amount of people that attend the dining halls on that day?

Photo Possibilities: I could take pictures of many different things including the students without trays, students getting food or students adding their food waste to the food waste bin.

Audio Possibilities: I plan on interviewing a student at one of the dining halls to get their opinion on "Trayless Tuesday" and how they feel about it.
