Congratulations LIFE Graduates!
You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.
Today’s feature is a Recyclemania giveaway. Remember LIFE University is participating in this eight week long recycling competition. To help reduce waste we’re giving away a pack of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Because a CFL lasts 6 to 10 times longer than a traditional incandescent bulb you’ll be reducing waste, and saving time and effort in replacing burnt out bulbs. To enter the giveaway respond to this post by Monday, February 13, 2012 with the phrase “I live a Sustainable LIFE.”
Once again Life University has joined millions of students across the country by making a difference and participating in the 2012 Recyclemania Tournament. Recyclemania is an 8-week recycling competition endorsed by the America College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment .
Life University will take part in the waste minimization portion of the contest, focusing on overall waste reduction. This will include an educational campaign teaching the campus community to cut waste by placing emphasis on reusing materials and source reduction.
Stay tuned to the blog for tips on recycling and chances to win prizes as we learn new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. Be among the first to receive new posts (and increase your chances to win) by subscribing to A Sustainable Life.
A FREE clothing swap will be held on Wednesday February 1, 2012 from 9am to 9pm at the LIFE University Treehouse. Donations of clean and folded clothes (men’s, women’s and children’s) will be accepted at the Treehouse on Sundays after 12pm until January 29, 2012. The great thing about this event is that you can donate even if you can’t shop…and shop even if you don’t donate. All clothes that don’t find a good home will be donated to Goodwill after the event. What a win, win opportunity!

Did you know that the environmental footprint of our clothing is alarming. Americans throw away 68 pounds of clothes on average each year, and we only buy 10 pounds of recycled clothes annually.
