We just received our Green Initiative report for CIFF42 and couldn’t be happier to share the numbers with you! Thanks to the efforts of our CIFF Green Team, @rustbeltriders, and the incredible CIFF volunteer force, we diverted 8,660.5 pounds, which equals about 4.33 TONS, of waste! Breakdown for the curious: 
3,060 pounds of cardboard recycling
2,900 pounds of recycling (paper, plastic, and aluminum)
1,055 pounds of compost
1,645.5 pounds of insinkerator 
Through recycling alone, we saved 13 trees, 145 gallons of oil, 1,444 hours of electricity, and 4,003 gallons of water 
Through diverting food and organic waste through compost and insinkerator disposal, we prevented 1 ton of greenhouse gas emissions and saved 3.25 cubic yards of organic waste from going into a landfill.
