My last post mentioned a story about college students getting involved in environmental volunteer work after graduation. This story out of the University of Central Florida provides a great example of just one of the many ways students can get involved while still in school. Students will be collecting red solo cups all over campus and making sure they get recycled. Adding another win to that one, for every cup that is recycled, TerraCycle will donate two cents to the Sea Turtle Conservancy. It’s a great way to achieve two important goals with one program. They’re making sure that red solo cups get recycled while at the same time providing important funds to an organization that works to protect endangered sea turtle populations.
