Since my second email Carl Powell has stated that Ringling has worked out a recycling program and that the issue will be resolved. If the problem is not resolved by next semester I will continue to voice my concerns.
I have also been talking to a number of students who would be willing to join in on a collaborative effort to create an organic vegetable garden on campus. I feel that this could have a number of positive effects. One being a joint effort between majors on the layout and design of the garden, which could also serve as a sculpture garden and walkway. It could give students on the meal plan an option to each fresher food and more sustainable food. I believe it would also make Ringling's campus even more attractive to incoming students.
