Tailgate Recycling

We love our Aggies, but we hate the our trash! Since 2013, we have been taking in recyclable materials from our home football games. Tailgating shifts last 1-1.5 hours, but afterwards you can stick around for veggie dogs and burgers. Stay updated on Aggie Sustainability Club volunteer opportunities like this on AggiePulse

usu gleaning team
USU Gleaning Team

The Cache Community Gleaning Team is a student-driven program. The program’s purpose is to gather excess fruit and vegetables from private tree owners in the Cache County area to give back to the community. With your help, the gleaning team is able to harvest fruit for free. Tree owners and volunteers can keep some produce for themselves, though most is given away. Many of the tree owners are older community members who are no longer able to harvest their fruit. Come join us!

alternative gift market
Alternative Gift Market

We are hosting the alternative gift market booth on-campus! This will be an opportunity for students to buy their Christmas gifts while eliminating consumerism/traditional waste associated with packaging and trinket's obsolescence. Instead, participants exchange useful gifts to promote social equity and environmental sustainability. For example, $1 can provide 35 doses of medicine for citizens of Burma, and $11 can buy a cook-stove for women in Kenya. There are many possible gifts available, and they all go toward good causes. If you would like to participate, we are looking for volunteers to human the tables, manage money, and educate interested individuals on the program details. To learn more or to volunteer, check us out on AggiePulse!
