For those who have mastered the challenge of getting travel toiletries into a quart-sized bag, it’s time to take on the Student Government Association (SGA) Sustainability Committee’s Wasteless Challenge.
From April 17–21, students will try to fit a week’s worth of waste into a single gallon-sized bag. Participants will put anything they can’t reuse, compost, or recycle into a provided bag. The challenge is focused on the “five R’s”: Refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle.
The first 200 students to sign up will be given a zero-waste starter kit with eco-friendly essentials. The winning team will receive a $1,000 donation toward a charity of choice, with points awarded based on participation throughout the week.
Sign up by Wednesday, April 12, at tinyurl.com/LSTV47N and share your progress on social media with #GetWasteless.
The competition leads up to Tech’s 20th annual Earth Day celebration on April 21. Learn more about the festival at earthday.gatech.edu and plan to attend.
