PROVO Brigham Young University students and faculty are invited to learn how to become better stewards of the Earth during BYU's celebration of America Recycles Day this week.
• Today, a lecture on environmental stewardship and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as a panel discussion on environmental ethics with BYU faculty members will be from 1 to 3 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.
• Today through Thursday, the BYU EcoResponse Club will host booths from 10 a.m. to noon in Brigham Square, on campus, where visitors can learn how to live more environmentally friendly lives.
BYU recycles white paper, colored and mixed paper, newspaper, cardboard and soda cans, as well as specialty items like books, green waste, batteries, fluorescent lights, computers and toner cartridges. After collecting, sorting and baling these items, they are sold to recycling companies, saving BYU thousands of dollars each year.
Blue recycling bins are located in every building on campus. For more information, e-mail the EcoResponse Club at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on America Recycles Day, visit nrc-recycle.org.
