Campus Sustainability + America Recycles Day
EcoReps participated in Campus Sustainability + America Recycles Day on November 15th by setting up a table with a 
re-purposing theme. Students were able to stop by the table and make cloth bow ties from scrap fabric that otherwise may have been thrown away. The bow ties proved to be a success and students learned new ways to re-purpose items that are often thought of as trash.
