RECYCLEMANIA OLYMPICS A HIT WITH UH STUDENTS


Butler Plaza filled with students as they lined up for games and prizes on Wednesday, March 9 for RecycleMania Olympics. Green UH set up games made of recyclable materials between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for students to enjoy and take a break between classes. Students had fun while showing support and learning more about green initiatives on campus.

“RecycleMania 2011 Olympics exceeded our expectations,” said Billy Garner, Marketing Coordinator for University Services. “I have never seen that many students come out and show their support for Green UH. It’s clear to see we are getting through to all the students in a way that is fun for everyone.”

Students had five games to choose from to test their skills including skee ball using recycled foil balls, a bean bag tic-tac-toe, ring toss with recycled bottles and oversized horseshoes. Also, groups of students gathered to face off at tug-of-war competitions throughout the afternoon. UH’s Recycle Man also came out for the day to cheer on the students and encourage recycling.

After working up a thirst, students could stop by the Honest Tea table for a sample or swing by the Coca Cola station for some recycled T-shirts and hats. C.L.A.S.P. was also on site to hand out samples of cilantro grown in the campus community garden and sign up volunteer gardeners.

The event was part of this year’s RecycleMania, a national competition between colleges and universities to raise awareness about recycling. University of Houston led Texas in 2010 in the actual weights category for recycling. Green UH also challenged the campus community to get involved by hosting its own competition. Faculty/staff groups and student organizations compete against each other in order to be crowned recycling champions and win a catering credit for their group.

“I recently visited England where they recycle all the time. Americans need to have better recycling ethics. We are wasting way too much,” said Kevin Gandhi, Industrial Construction sophomore who attended the RecycleMania Olympics.
