Dorms battle for “green” prize

By Grace Welsh —

The University of Louisville Sustainability Council has teamed up with Recyclemania to engage students and faculty in a competition between 141 North American universities to promote eco-conscious lifestyles.

The event, known as Ecolympics 2020, will happen from Feb. 2 to March 28 and encourages reducing waste, recycling and composting across campus.

The consumption of single-use disposables is rampant across the nation, but the U of L Sustainability Council is encouraging students to cut back by bringing their own items and taking advantage of U of L’s single-stream recycling system when possible.
