1 through 7, Recycling Heaven! Things just got easier…

From today on all plastic bottles and containers are accepted in our single stream recycling. Wether yoghurt cups, milk bottles, or fruit containers, all go into the blue bin in your dorm room, and into the blue container outside. Thanks to Brown County Recycling for sharing their recylcing guide with us! Please pay attention to which items cannot be recycled in the single stream bins and see the photos attached and their website at http://www.recyclemoretricounty.org/

Join the thrifty Super Swap on February 11+12!

Student showing Eco U t-shirt
Eco U goes apparel! Alumni Christine Engler ’10 designed this cool Eco U shirt. Maybe it’ll show up at the Super Swap?

It’s a Clothing and Household Swap!

Think green and recycle your unused and unwanted items by swapping with other students and employees at UW-Green Bay. Bring your clean clothing in good to excellent condition (all sizes, including children), smaller, working household items such as kitchen or decoration items, smaller sports- or toy- related items, or anything else that can be transported by foot or car back to the new owner’s home.

Clean out your closets and bring your clean stuff in good shape to Phoenix A and B from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11. Then come back from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12, to pick out stuff to take home. All items must be removed by 4 p.m. on Thursday. Sponsored by Pride Center and SGA.

USDA Soil Scientist Joins ‘Dirt! The Movie’ Dec-7 on Campus

USDA soil scientist will join us for ‘Dirt! The Movie’
The iPat environmental film series resumes with “Dirt! The Movie” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2, in the Christie Theatre. The filmlooks at man’s relationship with dirt, and the connection that has been lost over time. After the screening, guest speaker Phil Meyer, area resource soil scientist for USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, will lead the discussion. The iPat Film Series (impact = population * affluence * technology) is sponsored by PEAC, The Center for Public Affairs, and the Department of Public and Environmental Affairs. All showings are free and open to the public, with free popcorn, to boot.
