Yesterday, we attended the MIT Community Fall Break 2009. The event was designed to familiarize MIT community with GreeningMIT, an institute-wide initiative to encourage sustainable practices. It was a wonderful zero waste event with delicious food and compostable cups made from corn.
In early fall, we always try to engage MIT community in our outreach efforts. We had a superb turnout of incoming undergraduate and graduate students. If you are interested in joining the team, please see this page.
If you are looking to make immediate impact, check out the MIT Facilities Transportation page. It lists multiple options available to MIT students and employees. Students can take advantage of Zipcar heavily discounted membership and of subsidized T passes. Employees also qualify for Alternative Transit Subsidy and Bicycle Commuter Benefit Program.
