Our Hope Advocates for Sustainability interns have begun a 6-month campaign to help reduce the amount of plastic film from going to the landfill. Due to COVID there has been an increased usage of single use items and our interns hope this program will help with this problem. We encourage all staff, faculty, and students to bring in any of the approved plastic film materials to one of our collection bins on campus. This program will run through July 2021. If we collect 500+ pounds of material (about 40,500 plastic bags) TREX will donate a high-performance composite bench to our campus.

The collection bins have been placed in the following locations:

Schaap Science Center (side entrance to SC 1000 near the vending machines)

Bultman Student Center (outside room 002)

Jack Miller (second floor near the back stairway)
