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!
