Princeton environmentalists get it wrong

Princeton's dining halls have started a new green initiative that asks students to eat their meals without trays for one day a month. This will decrease the amount of dishwater used to wash trays and environmental groups expect it will cut the amount of food students generally waste when they fill their trays with more than they can eat.

As part of The Princeton Animal Welfare Society's (PAWS) "blitz week," we proposed a new initiative for students: go meatless. PAWS distributed these fliers as a response to the trayless policy:


While we commend efforts that have environmental aims, we think people should consider veganism as one of the most effective ways to cut waste and save water.

This flier was designed by PAWS Vice President Emeritus Alex Barnard. If you would like to use PAWS literature on your campus, email aniamls@princeton.edu.
