1. Please help us push for improved game day recycling

We need your help. As you know, we are currently working with the Athletic Association to improve the state of recycling at home football games. Right now, we are at a stand-still, waiting on them to make contacts within other schools.

To get the ball rolling (it’s what we do), we’re sending them a listing of other schools’ recycling programs and contact info so that they have no excuse to let it die (it will, we promise, if we don’t do something).

Please pick a school from the list below, write a brief (2-3 sentence) summary on their game day recycling program, and include all the contact information you can find on the best point of contact within the school (staff/faculty in charge of it). Please email this back ASAP to ugaecologyclub@gmail.com. Thank you!

2. Sweet internship opportunities in sustainability for next year

Several internships are now being offered through the River Basin Center at UGA regarding various facets of sustainability. Any undergraduate interested in sustainability should apply – you will gain an immense amount of knowledge for work totally worth your while. Please see attached documents. If anyone needs assistance or advice creating or improving their resume, Mark would love to help you at any time.

P.S. These internships should all be filled with Ecology Clubbers!
