Sustainability Events

“Get Caught Green Handed” is an initiative of the Sustainability Center with help from College Activities and the Green Guy. Students at SWIC were caught doing something eco-friendly at one of the campuses weekly during the fall 2012 semester. They received great prizes including an organic t-shirt, a reusable water bottle or reusable grocery bags. The Green Guy assisted WITS at the Red Bud Campus Recycle It All Fest with the electronic recycling pick-up.
