UofL football tailgaters "go green"
Tailgaters at UofL football games now have an opportunity to do something "green" with their cans and paper products. Teams of students in UofL's new sustainability degree program pass out green bags for fans to separate their recyclables for the parking lot clean up crews.
Recycling, community service and football. Those three things are coming together for students in the new sustainability degree program at the University of Louisville. Gameday Green Teams of students walk around stadium parking lots before UofL football games, handing out green recycling bags to make it easier for fans to recycle their cans and paper products. After home games, the green bags are picked up and separated by the stadium clean up crew, keeping recyclable material out of landfills.
“I think it’s a great program” said UofL fan Ashley Davenport. “It helps spread the message that a little bit goes a long way. There’s a lot in our landfill so every little bit counts… I’m glad it’s making it easy for us.”
