On Saturday, November 16, the Greening Athletics EcoReps hosted a Tiger Sustainability Night at the Princeton Hockey game. Acting as "Recycling Goalies," the EcoReps assisted attendees with sorting their waste at the bins located in Baker Rink. By demonstrating proper recycling, the EcoReps were able to help reduce the amount of contamination in the recycling bins during the game. Go Tigers!

The following Saturday, November 23, the Greenin g Dorms EcoReps hosted their biannual Clothing Swap . The goal of the event is to spread awareness about fast fashion as well as to provide a fun and no-cost opportunity for Princeton students to revamp their wardrobes. All leftover items were donated through campus partner, HELPSY . Student group, Mend was also on-hand to help teach attendees how to sew or tailor their "new-to-you" finds.

Sustainability Action Plan Iconography
What do these icons mean?
Inspired by the UN's Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs, we created icons to represent the seven action areas in our campus Sustainability Action Plan. Throughout our newsletter, we have identified news and events that are aligned with these action areas.
