UWBC Receives 2023 Greenovation Award


The UWBC received the 2023 Greenovation Award from Kimberly-Clark Professional! This award recognizes those customers that illustrate sustainability leadership and proactively reduce their environmental impact. The UWBC diverted 529 pounds of PPE waste from landfills in 2022. We are on track to divert more in 2023! UWBC participates in the Kimberly-Clark RightCycle program which takes used Kimberly-Clark PPE (mostly nitrile gloves) and recycles them into plastic pellets to use for new consumer products. If you would like to learn more about this program and how you can get involved, reach out to Molly Zeller at zeller2@wisc.edu or the UW Office of Sustainability (info@sustainability.wisc.edu).
