COSA | Committee on sustainability assessment

The COSA Project, a collaboration with the Committee on Sustainability Assessment, is set to examine sustainability standards for the coffee industry. Team members will research and document the sustainability commitments and supplier requirements of many of the largest coffee roasters and retailers in the United States, eventually compiling a state-of-the-industry report.


The Reusable Product Design team strives to design innovative and functional reusable containers for consumer products. The team will focus on design and research, primarily centered around a fully reusable metal toothpaste tube. Investigation into carbon footprints, sales models, and the potential to market and sell the designed product will be critical endeavors for the semester.
