October is Sustainability Month!

By, Hannah Carson

Fall is here to stay and so is Sustainability Month! This October we have so many special events and activities planned centered around sustainability.

All month long:
1. Social media challenge – Post your pictures each week to your Instagram or your Instagram story for a chance to win a prize! Tag us @gvsusustains and 1 winner will be announced weekly. Each week will have a different theme; Oct 3rd-9th is sustainable transportation, Oct 10th-16th is sustainable food, Oct 17th-23rd is reusable items, and Oct 24th-30th is sustainability campus event.

2. Coloring Kids’ Food Basket bags – Stop by our office at 260 Lake Michigan Hall and grab some brown paper bags to color for Kids’ Food Basket! Simply grab a couple bags to take with you, decorate them, and return them to our office when you’re finished! Further instructions will be on the table outside our office.

3. Up-cycling T-shirts – Stop by our office to grab a T-shirt to turn into a tote bag! This super easy up-cycling activity is a great way to reuse old T-shirts. Instructions will be on the table outside of our office and online if you choose to use your own T-shirt! 

4. GVSU honey sale – Use this link: https://www.gvsu.edu/sustainableagproject/farmstand-index.htm which will direct you to our Online Farm Stand where you can purchase honey, chapstick, and more goodies! This is a great way to buy local and support our amazing Beekeeper Club.

For a more detailed look at what we have going on each day of the week, our Sustainability Month calendar is below!

Happy October, everyone!
