Green Panthers Take Perfect Sort Challenge on the Road

November 13, 2015

The Green Panther Challenge, a new effort to engage student athletes and their fans on sustainability issues, is hitting the road this weekend as Field Hockey, Cross Country and Football all head off campus. Athletes from a range of teams helped fans sort their waste at the Homecoming football game in October, and we saw our sorting rates triple from that effort. This time players are sorting their own waste as they travel by bus. Facilities provided each team with kits containing landfill and recycling bags, and well as compost bins for on-the-go sorting.

We're looking forward to hearing how it went, and wish the best of luck to all of our teams this weekend!
