Garbology Goes to College

Terrific news: Cal State University Northridge has selected Garbology as this fall's common read for incoming freshmen -- with the book nominated and chosen by faculty, staff and students. I'm looking forward to speaking with the 4,000 freshmen at the university convocation in September.

This is what Learning Resource Center staffer Debbi Mercado wrote in nominating Garbology:
"I think the book could result in a number of interesting campus projects and leave us all with a sense of empowerment and a desire to make some changes in our daily lives. . . . it provides great fodder for classroom discussions and even personal reflections about consumerism, waste, environmental issues, values, the daunting math of it all, and how we might each change our trash habits."
