Trayless Dining At UMass Amherst

The University of Massachusetts Amherst has gone tray-less, meaning there are no more plastic trays in the dining commons or eateries.

The plan to go tray-less was initiated last semester, to help UMass become more sustainable. Tray-less dining is supposed to reduce food waste from 25 to 30 percent. The program was tested on incoming Freshmen over the summer at the New Students Orientation, and went into full effect this fall.

While the trend is catching on at schools large and small across the country, the program has received mixed reviews from dining services staff and some students at UMass. But the over all response has been mostly positive. Any issues associated with tray-less dining are currently being addressed and solved.

Tray-less dining is here to stay.

Paper Graffiti à Montréal

I went to Montreal for a few days in the summer. As usual, I was armed with my little camera and was seeking out graffiti and street art. Silly me, and with lack of time and a lot of filmmaking to do, I forgot to post the photos. So here are some and I will post the rest continuously…

These were found in the Saint Catherine Street area. They are similar to the work of Swoon. But no assumptions here.

More to come later…
