Get Wasteless Challenge

Did you know that the average person sends 4.4 pounds of waste each day to the landfill? Have you ever considered how this impacts our Earth?  Well, the SGA Sustainability Committee is hosting the Get Wasteless challenge once again!

From April 15th through April 19th (leading up to GT Earth Day), compete with your friends to reduce the waste you produce! Whatever can’t be reused, composted, or recycled will go in a gallon-sized bag provided to you. Last year we had over 500 students participate and this year we are opening it up to faculty and staff as well! We expect over 700 people to sign up so make sure you sign up soon as spots are limited! The winning team will receive a $500 donation towards a charity of choice, with points awarded based upon participation throughout the week, and will be announced on stage during Earth Day.

Let’s #GetWasteLess! Sign-up by Monday, April 5th at: https://orgsync.com/130898/forms/357677
