February 10, 2014

Can a sports arena that seats 9,000 hold an event that produces zero landfill waste?

Attend Penn Men's Basketball game against Harvard on Friday, February 21 and see how it's done.

Penn's Athletics Student Eco-Reps in partnership with Penn Athletics and Penn's Division of Facilities and Real Estate Services plans that only compostable waste and recycling will be the outcome of this basketball game. For weeks student Eco-Reps have been promoting the Feb 21 Zero-Waste event at other basketball games, sharing this fun video Public Service Announcement to point sports fan in the right direction. http://bit.ly/PennZeroWasteGame
