Welcome Students! Move In Green at Start of School Year

August 27, 2013

M.I. (Move In) Green volunteers welcomed students to a new academic year at Penn, as a visible example of environmental sustainability efforts at work. Volunteers help incoming students learn about recycling on campus, ways to reduce their carbon footprint, and opportunities to get involved in sustainability initiatives at Penn. Nearly 40 M.I. Green volunteers worked directly with students and their families, helping with appropriate disposal of move-in packing items and providing direction on other sustainability practices at the University.

Fact

UCGreen has planted over 2000 trees since its establishment in 1998.
