What's on November 12th? Our next home game!! What happens before the game? TAILGATE!! Well, did you realize the homecoming football game tailgate produced a disgusting amount of waste (22,000 pounds of it)! At the end of the tailgate, all of the cans and bottles that were left on the ground were scooped up and sent out with the trash, instead of being recycled. On November 12th, we have a chance to make a change by participating in the EPA Game Day Challenge, to significantly reduce the waste at the next home football tailgate. Each volunteer will receive a free game ticket, t-shirt, and a $10 food voucher which can be used outside or inside of the stadium. Sign up to volunteer here: http://umass.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=18ffdf391514dc7c2395a2ac7&id=8076e2cd09&e=1472438907
