RecycleMania: Ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle all Year

It’s easy being green!

I just wanted to share this article recently posted on our website.

We contacted nearly 200 schools who have participated in the Waste Minimization division of the RecycleMania competition, this year, and in years past, and asked for their creative ideas on how to keep sustainability moving all year-round once the competition ends.  We then incorporated many of their responses into an article titled, “Year-Round RecycleMania: Creative Ways to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle All Year.”

We got so much response that we were not able to directly quote everyone who participated.  However, we would now like to open up this blog space for additional comments and discussion from everyone who was involved in RecycleMania.

Students, faculty and staff, please feel free to share your thoughts on any of the ideas mentioned in the article, as well as any others not mentioned.  If your school did not participate in the Waste Minimization division, but participated in the other divisions, we’d love to hear from you as well!  Or, if you’re not a college student, but you know of great ways to “go green” outside of college campuses, we’d also love to hear from you. This platform is open to anyone who reads our blog.

In an attempt to  make sustainability a convenient and habitual part of our everyday lives, we would like to continue to spread the word about events like RecycleMania, so check back often for other articles and blog posts related to sustainable efforts.

Thanks again to all who participated!
