Bright ideas: Artwork shows RecyleMania is more than 'green'
RecycleMania is a competition designed to build awareness around recycling and waste minimization. More than 500 colleges and universities participate to encourage minimizing their waste stream and increase recycling rates.
At UW-Green Bay, a “sustainability fair” of sorts was scheduled in the Cloud Commons the week of Feb. 27. Among the many activities and highlights of the fair: curtains made of recycled bottles, a balloon wall display made entirely of plastic caps; craft opportunities (using the caps), reusable bag give-away for students, Zimride and U-Pass information, vendors, a stack-the-caps contest, and a pledge wall for which ‘pledgers’ were entered in a bike give-away.
