Green Hotels Project

Group Member(s): Aleece Hanson & Mercy Solorzano

Professor Name & Course: Dr. Mary Caputi | POSC 401: Women in Western Political Theory

Our project provides sustainability suggestions for the hotel industry. Hotels contribute to climate change through the extensive use of single-use plastics and the intensive upkeep hotels require. Since many people will be returning to hotels with the end of the pandemic, this is the perfect time for the hotel industry as a whole to evaluate their practices prior to the pandemic and see how they can improve their sustainability in the present. If enough hotels adopt these small changes, a large impact can be made.

Cropsticks: Sustainability Showcase

Group Member(s): Kelli Nakamura

Professor Name & Course: Dr. Mary Caputi | POSC 401: Women in Western Political Theory

Cropsticks is a company that was founded by Mylen Yamamoto.  This company sells chopsticks and straws that are made out of bamboo.  Bamboo, as opposed to wood, is a renewable material.  Moreover, the company, Cropsticks, offers an upcycling option in which restaurants can send in used chopsticks so that the company can manufacture bamboo tiles.  This reduces the company's carbon footprints.

Group Member(s): Nicole Kieva, Angel Gallo, Taylor Sargis, Alex Huynh & Kayla Lam

Professor Name & Course: Dr. Mary McKinley | MKTG 405: Green Marketing and Sustainability

This project is for Marketing 405, Green Marketing and Sustainability. We were given the assignment to choose a company that is doing good by doing well. This means not just doing well by the environment but also making decisions that align with corporate social responsibility. We chose Delta Airlines because they are a company making these ethical decisions but are not communicating well enough to the public about these decisions they are making to better the world. In this poster, we have highlighted 10 indicators that show Delta’s impact on the community and the environment.

Uber to a Greener World

Group Member(s): Anthony Bautista, Cheyenne Daugherty, Elizabeth Garcia, Logan Goold & Samantha Suggs

Professor Name & Course: Dr. Mary McKinley | MKTG 405: Green Marketing and Sustainability

Our project dives into the sustainability issues facing Uber and the initiatives they could take to address these shortcomings. Uber has put a lot of cars on the road in the short time they have been operating. Their convenience offering comes at cost to the emission reduction efforts of public transit, as single rides now put more cars on the road. Additionally, to keep prices low, drivers have been denied benefits and controversy has ensued. We cover some initiatives to bring Uber into favorability with better treatment of local laws, the environment, and the drivers that make their business work.

Meatless Mondays

Group Member(s): Anahi Velasquez-Ramos

Professor Name & Course: Dr. Mary Caputi | POSC 401: Women in Western Political Theory

The concept that is being explored here is expanding the idea of meatless Mondays. Instead of focusing solely on consumers to consume less meat I am presenting the idea of having restaurants and fast food chains participate in meatless Mondays as well. The reasoning behind this is that these companies can offer plant based options at a discounted price on Mondays in order to convince the consumer to participate in meatless Mondays. I also propose that these chains simply don't offer meat options on Mondays. This idea helps save our environment by making the demand for meat go down meaning that less water will be used and less methane gases will be polluting our air from animal agriculture.
