A place to put their cans

I read with shock and disbelief the article in last week’s Malibu Times concerning the lack of any recycling plan at Pepperdine University. It is incredible to understand why Pepperdine currently has no such plan.

With all the forward-thinking academics on campus, one would think they would have been at the forefront of implementing some sort of campus-wide recycling plan long ago with not only the environment in mind but the community of which they are a part. I applaud the students of the university’s Environmental Law Society, who obviously possess an admirable social conscience. It is time for law school dean Richardson Lynn, the university’s executive vice president Andrew Benton and the other powers-that-be at Pepperdine to establish and put into effect a recycling plan without further delay.
