Sustainability at Reunion
Look back at what we did in 2018
What we're doing
This year, we're especially excited to be incorporating sustainability into Reunion in some big ways. Here's how:
We're eliminating single-use plastics from the weekend.
Your food scraps from dinner will go straight to the compost — via some helpful pigs at a local, certified humane farm.
How you can help
Every year, your enthusiastic participation, generosity, and Williams-Mystic spirit help make alumni weekend a success. This year, we'll need your help to make the weekend sustainable as well.
Here's what we'll ask you to do:
Reuse, reuse, reuse! At the swizzle and dinner, we're ditching single-use plastic cups for rented glassware. We'll also provide some brand-new, vibrant 2018 Reunion cups for you to use — and take home. Help us out by bringing your reusable water bottle for the whole weekend, and by taking home your Reunion cup at the end of Saturday night.
