Green Game Day at Rentschler Field: September 26, 2009
On September 26, 2009 EcoHusky students and residents of EcoHouse volunteered at UConn's first "Green Awareness Day" at Rentschler Field. As cars entered the parking lots before the Huskies took to the field, volunteers handed out recycling bags to promote recycling within the tailgating areas. Inside the stadium, new recycling bins were in place on the concourse to also encourage proper recycling. All food waste from concessions was composted by Global Environmental Services and "Grease Guys" recycled the waste cooking oil generated at the event. During the game, volunteers also "manned the can" within the Rent, encouraging UConn football fans young and old to dispose of their recyclables properly.
1st Annual Green Game Day: February 2009
During the 1st Annual Green Game Day, EcoHusky volunteers educated UConn Men's Basketball fans about proper recycling practices at Gampel Pavilion. Volunteers "manned the cans" and made sure all recyclables were placed in proper receptacles. At the end of the game, EcoHuskies walked around the stands, making sure that the last of the recyclables were taken care of.
