Cascadia College is hosting a poster contest to promote smart, easy, and efficient ways that everyone can participate in recycling programs going on all around us. All students are invited to submit original works that deal with recycling or repurposing objects in their daily lives– in school, at home, and everywhere!
Draw it, paint it, collage it, photograph it…anything you want to do to express your recycling ideas–just do it!
Entries can be submitted directly to the judges at: firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 14, and prizes will be given out at Cascadia College during an Earth Week Celebration on April 20th, 2017.
Don’t forget to include your name and some contact information so we can let you know if you are our lucky winner!
Say it loud and say it proud–we want to see what recycling means to you!
Thanks to BAS in Sustainable Practices student and Winter Sustainability Intern, Justin Masi, Cascadia and UWB are participating in Recyclemania throughout February and March.
Justin is monitoring waste diversion rates across campus daily. Essentially, he is checking to see how full all of our dumpsters (garbage, recycling and compost) are every evening before they are picked up.
Step one of Recyclemania is to get baseline waste diversion rates. Step two is to promote recycling and composting on campus in hopes of improving waste diversion rates (decreasing our inputs to the landfill and increasing our recycling and composting). We’ll be sure to keep you posted on what he learns. Meanwhile, please do your part to make sure recyclables and compostables end up in the appropriate bins.
