I Recycle Pledge Drive Winner: Virginia Tech
Virginia Tech won the 2014 RecycleMania “I Recycle” pledge drive! Virginia Tech’s sustainability team teamed up with various campus organizations to collect more than 500 pledges and will receive a recycled-content plastic park bench from Plastic Recyclers of Iowa falls!
How did they do it?
- Eleven interns tabled two days during lunch prime-time in the busiest dining hall.
- Social media posts that were then shared by other campus organizations
- Emailed pledge invitation to staff "Green Represenative" staff list as well as faculty, staff, and student Enegery and Sustainability Committee, who in turn shared it with their own email lists
Overall, more than 60 colleges participated in the RecycleMania pledge drive, resulting in over 3,000 pledges taken to recycle more during the three week pledge drive contest. Below is a listing of the top 15 schools (including two ties!) that participated in the pledge drive.
