Sustainable Princeton Thanks Arts Council, PU, Others, For Supporting Sustainable Initiatives at Communiversity

To the Editor:

With much appreciation, on behalf of Sustainable Princeton’s Trustees, staff, volunteers and supporters, we thank the Arts Council of Princeton, Princeton University’s Office of Sustainability and Office of Community and Regional Affairs, the Municipality of Princeton’s Public Works Department, and event attendees for their support of our sustainable initiatives at this year’s Communiversity ArtsFest.

We were so pleased to be able to bring Resource Recovery Tents to provide composting bins and recycling education in an effort to reduce Princeton’s carbon footprint. It was wonderful to see hundreds of visitors, who cared about the destination of their waste, visit our tents and use our water refill stations. We applaud the many people who chose to get to Communiversity in a sustainable way — we saw a lot of bikes and walkers!

At Sustainable Princeton, we are committed to the motto, Change a Habit, Change the World. This year, great strides were made to make Communiversity a more sustainable event. We look forward to building on this progress in 2019 through partnership with leadership of the Arts Council of Princeton and Communiversity ArtsFest event coordinators.
