It is always such a pleasure to see campus light up with new UC students at the beginning of the year. The Sustainability Office always hosts a stall at International Welcome Day and O Day, and this year we introduced a new initiative called the UC Green Team, where volunteers sign up to help with campus-based sustainability projects as they arise. Over 60 students joined up!
We also gave away an Eco prize pack, featuring donations from Eco-Tanka (water bottle) and 4MyEarth (sandwich wrap).
Thanks so much to Victora Faalilo, Katie Collier, Michael Galloway, Michael Perry, Alex McNeill, George Moon, Donna Lusby, and Ploy Kitisopakul for helping out at our O week stalls. Michael Perry also painted our green “Eco Club” cones in preparation of UCSA Clubs day.
