|CLI E-Waste Student Group|
We are a student group sponsored by the Cal Leadership Institute, under the Center for Student Leadership in 102 Sproul Hall. We are dedicated to construct an Environmental Social Justice Project to educate the UC Berkeley community and to improve proper e-waste disposal efforts. Thus, we have developed a project partnering with Cal Dining and Cal Surplus and Salvage to promote the recycling of e-waste products ranging from cell phones, to batteries, old ink cartridges, to printers, CDs, and even old computers.
Unfortunately, e-waste recycling does not catch as much attention as other recycling issues and as a result we as a student group hope to generate greater awareness involving the issues of e-waste, to promote proper recycling efforts among the UC Berkeley campus, and to achieve a noticeable difference within our community.
On October 10th thousands of communities around the world will celebrate climate solutions and tell our politicians to "get to work" for climate and clean energy solutions. You can sign up your work party, or join in on current plans on campus and in the city.
|Dining Sustainability Education Coordinators|
We are Dining Sustainability Education Coordinators (DSECs). Our mission is simple-to empower and educate Cal students to understand the rhetoric surrounding sustainability and food in order to make informed decisions on what to eat. We work towards this goal by holding student outreach events at the DCs (Crossroads, Cafe 3, Foothill, & Clark Kerr,) creating cool table tents you read while you eat, making awesome posters, and now, this even more amazing blog.
The Human Power Generation in Fitness Facilities research project has conducted a feasibility study was conducted on the Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) at the University of California, Berkeley, to determine how energy efficient the facility was and to estimate the amount of energy that could be harnessed from gym patrons. The study was conducted for an energy harnessing system that involves retrofitting elliptical machines so that their built-in resistance mechanism is replaced with a micro-inverter, which converts the patron's direct current electricity into usable alternating current electricity.
|The Great Power Race|
The Great Power Race is a clean energy competition between students in China, India, and the United States.

|Increase can/bottle recycling @ Cal|
This project will increase beverage container recycling by increasing the number of multi-material recycling containers on campus and improve the signage of those bins based on student input. Market research will be conducted to determine feedback on priority locations and a measure of recycling awareness. This information will be used to select locations for new outdoor bins and possibly redesign the bins to be more user friendly.
|Water Metering and Sub-metering of UC Berkeley Campus Buildings|
This project aims to monitor water use in campus buildings, targe the most wasteful facilities, and bring quantifiable savings to the University while promoting conservation on campus. This project will connect the water meters in several campus buildings to the online Obvius server to get real-time use data, perform short-term metering of specific bathrooms and other areas of water use, install water sub-metes in several campus buildings to get water-use information at a finer resolution, and install a pilot project of dual-flush toilets and pint-flush urinals to conserve water.
|Wurster Hall Compost Project|
In an effort to make Wurster Hall a more sustainable campus building, a group of students, staff and faculty are working together to find ways to reduce the building's environmental footprint. To address one of the primary concerns, food waste, a need for a compost program was identified. Wurster Hall occupants will begin by implementing composting in Ramona's Cafe on the first floor.
|Berkeley Student Food Collective|
The mission of the Berkeley Student Food Cooperative (BSFC) is to provide fresh, healthy, environmentally sustainable, and ethically produced food at an affordable price to Berkeley students. The BSFC will be a student-run natural and sustainable food cafe and market based on the cooperative model. A cooperative is a democratic, equally owned enterprise based on principles of open membership, democratic member control, autonomy and independence, education, cooperation among cooperatives, and concern for community.
|Strawberry Creek Native Plant Nursery and Garden|
ESW-Berkeley in conjunction with EH&S will create a native plant nursery and garden between Giannini Hall and Wellman Court to support the restoration of Strawberry Creek, This project is driven by four purposes: to maintain a seed stock for restoring the creek's riparian zone with native plants, to preserve species endemic to Strawberry Creek whose existence are threatened by the spread of invasive species, to provide ecosystem services to the campus landscape, and to serve as an effective site for environmental education.
