Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia’s student-led Go Green Alliance will host 8 Days to Go Green, Oct. 14-21, with activities every day to raise awareness for making UGA a green and sustainable university. The week will focus on recycling, energy and water conservation issues and will kick off with “Ice Scream, You Scream, We Recycle for Ice Cream” on Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. on Brumby Beach.
Students are invited to participate in other daily activities including Trashy Tuesday, a collection of all used issues of the student newspaper, The Red & Black, in Tate Plaza; Thirsty Thursday, a plastic water bottle-reusable bottle swap; and a Trashion Show at “Dawgs after Dark,” a competition for the top outfit made out of recyclables and trash.
Throughout the week, there will be a dorm competition for the most spirited residence hall. Additionally, there will be a hall competition between the three high rises – Brumby, Russell and Creswell – to see who can recycle the most throughout the eight days.
The student-led Go Green Alliance unites seven organizations interested in environmental sustainability and conservation on campus in a collaborative effort to tackle large environmental issues.
