This February, in cooperation with the Emory Office of Sustainability Initiatives, the Woodruff Library Service Desk, a unit of Access Services, launched new sustainable tote bags in a library-wide effort to increase the use of renewable and recyclable resources. The new all-cotton bags replace the polypropylene bags, which were reusable but not made from a renewable resource.
The new bags were made possible through an Incentives Fund grant from the Green Offices at Emory program sponsored by the Emory Office of Sustainability Initiatives. The new tote bags have been received with enthusiasm by library patrons.
