Another recycling-related event was The Green Life event hosted by Recycling Club this past Monday night. This event was modeled after The Game of Life but with a sustainability theme. Eight different clubs and organizations competed against each other for the grand prize, a $200 Visa gift card, along with smaller gift cards as the rewards to challenges. There was free food from campus catering services and KDPhi NAS ran Alex’s Lemonade Stand and all of the proceeds go to a great charity. The event very successful and teams seem to have a fun time playing through our version of life. We held two rounds of the game to allow more organizations to participate and the winning organizations are the Geology Club and Autism Speaks. Thank you to everyone who made this event a success!

One last thing, Recycling Club is proud to announce that we will be having the 4th Annual Earth Day Carnival on Earth Day(April 22nd) this year! The event will be from 4pm to 7pm on the SU Concourse (weather permitting). So mark your calendars!
