The 2017 Campus Earth Day activities will be run as zero-waste events! This means we are taking steps to reduce the amount of waste generated from the events, while diverting as much waste as possible from landfills through composting and recycling.
Student volunteers are crucial to the success of Earth Day and the zero-waste endeavor. Volunteers will provide information and education to attendees at all events about zero-waste and provide assistance with sorting for composting and recycling. Volunteers will:
- Learn about zero-waste practices
- Create environmental awareness
- Make an impact on the campus community and beyond
- Provide service for campus sustainability
- Receive a uniquely-designed UChicago Earth Day t-shirt and souvenir to commemorate participation in the event
- In addition, student organizations that provide more than 3 volunteers, it will be recognized on the University’s official Earth Fest 2017 website.
- Please sign up via the volunteer form now to express interest and join the mailing list. More specific details on volunteering and sign up links will be posted here and sent out in early Spring quarter.
Thank you for your service!
