I am helping to further along the reusable food containers. I have done (and will continue for the remainder of the week) tabling with help from various members of Tree House to get student feedback on the system. Also, I have done some research on some schools that have successful all-reusable containers like Denison, and they appear to use a system like the one we are already using, with the extra charge at checkout and a fine at the end of the year for any unreturned items. Oberlin however uses a different system, so I have added some things to the survey based on what they do. My survey will be sent out to the student population with questions pertaining to what some students have brought up, as well as some of my own concerns that I feel may need addressed. I will post the new survey draft as a separate blog post. As for what to do after it has been sent out and the feedback received, I will organize the results (or have help), list some ideas on how to meet the needs/requests of the students, and send it to Gene so she can take the necessary steps to make it all happen.
