Check out these selfies of ETF members!

Today we succesfully placed recycling labels on bins throughout Academic buildings on campus. These buildings include the Albin O. Kuhn Library atrium, Meyerhoff Chemistry Building, Biological Sciences Building, Mathematics/Psychology Building, Sherman Hall, Sondheim Hall, Administration, ITE, Engineering, Fine Arts Building and the PAHB. Check out our selfies below!

We’ll definitely be doing this again in the upcoming months. Also, get ready for BoxMania this Thursday on Erickson Field. ETF members will be there all day to help with the Fort construction, if interested in volunteering please email Sheena.

BoxMania is part of UMBC’s RecycleMania- an effort to promote increased recycling and decreased waste on campus!

Who: UMBC’s facilities, sustainability and eco-ambassadors are partnering with student groups, departments, and more to build BoxMania, a RecycleMania promotion effort!

What: Recycled cardboard boxes will be used to construct a unique UMBC Box Fort

Why: To raise awareness on the amount of cardboard waste generated, to generate excitement, collaboration and creativity around the issues of waste and recycling, and to generate involvement in the RecycleMania Competition

When: The BoxMania Fort Party will take place on Thursday, March 12th. Volunteers will build the fort on March 12th between 9am and 5pm.

Where: Erickson Field, UMBC

Tomorrow’s meeting (03/09) will be a service event!

Tomorrow we’ll be meeting briefly at NOON in Commons 328 to gather and receive instructions before breaking out into teams to update the sticker labels on the recycling and waste bins around campus! We are doing this to help promote sustainability on our campus. The first team to make it back to the room after getting to the buildings assigned to them will receive a special prize!

Please be on time, we’ll be leaving the room at 12:15p.

Hello World!
