AASHE enables colleges and universities to meet their sustainability goals by providing specialized resources, professional development, and a network for sharing information about sustainability products and services. Membership covers the entire business or campus, so everyone can take advantage of event discounts, access to member-only resources, and other benefits.
“We are delighted to have Max-R on board and participating in the campus sustainability community,” said Paul Rowland, executive director of AASHE. “Their involvement in AASHE demonstrates a commitment to working with higher education to create a just and sustainable future for all.”
Among AASHE’s major programs is the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS), which provides higher education with a standardized, comprehensive self-assessment instrument. STARS metrics cover every sector of campus, from planning and administration to operations, to education and research. With STARS as a roadmap or guide, institutions can select meaningful and appropriate pathways to sustainability while conserving valuable resources, mitigating global warming, and building healthier communities.
"It is a pleasure to continue our working relationship with such a progressive organization," said Mark Hammer, Executive Vice President of Max-R. "AASHE is clearly at the forefront of the sustainability movement and we are proud to be a part of that."

This vision of sustainability supports the company's offerings of tailored waste & recycling bins made of recycled plastic.
