Anything that helps the planet! The Thayne Center Facebook page has been posting ideas all week so check them out! Some common ideas include picking up trash, learning something new on what your local company can/can’t recycle (often surprising), or learning how you can recycle specific items such as batteries! 
No. Only the student vote for the UpCycle contest requires a S#. 
This is the fourth annual UpCycle Art Contest! This art contest is a way for community and campus members to get in touch with their creative side while also using sustainable and/or recycled materials. We know that all things are connected, so why can’t art and sustainability be connected, too? Students vote here!
