Wednesday, Oct. 27: Cyclones to Participate in "Green" Challenge Saturday
AMES, Iowa – Did you know that by recycling just one aluminum beverage can, you save enough energy to run a television long enough to watch an entire Cyclone football game? Do you want to help save enough energy to power every TV in Ames?
Iowa State Athletics has teamed up with the Live Green! Initiative, Iowa Waste Exchange, Facilities Planning and Management, and a student group – Engineers for a Sustainable World – to provide attendees at Saturday’s homecoming game a chance to demonstrate their commitment to recycling. The Iowa Waste Exchange is an affiliate of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
Iowa State will be one of more than 90 institutions nationwide taking part in a “Game Day Challenge” sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency. The challenge focuses on total material recycled in comparison to all the waste produced.
“We thought it sounded like an exciting opportunity to increase ISU’s green efforts and involve Cyclone fans,” said Meghan Roberts, Engineers for a Sustainable World Club President.
Two items focus at Saturday’s game will be cardboard and beverage containers. Recycling locations for beverage containers will be available throughout the stadium and at Cyclone tents before and during the game. Cardboard will be collected from vendors and the tents. A recycling bag, as well as a trash bag, will be provided to tailgaters as they enter the parking lots Saturday. Volunteers will be on-hand at tents, and in the stadium to assist fans.
Winners of the challenge will be announced in November.
“Athletics continues to add “green” elements to the game day experiences and this is an exciting challenge that we know Cyclone fans will embrace” said Allison Taylor, Chair of the Athletics Department Green Team.
