Sustainable Swag at LibLearnX?

  • 1.  Sustainable Swag at LibLearnX?

    Posted Feb 03, 2023 01:13 PM

    Did you attend LibLearnX in person and bring home any cool swag?  As you sort through the goods you picked up from LLX, if you come across any swag that meets our sustainable criteria (e.g. see this rubric), please let us know! The Sustainability Round Table would like to highlight these vendors. 

    What is an actual example of "sustainable swag"? Consider this bag, made of recycled cotton and distributed by Elsevier (with, according to a statement on the bag itself, "5% of the costs of this bag [having been] donated to Plastic Oceans").

    Elsevier bag where 5% of the cost of the bag was donated to the charity Plastic Oceans.
