I posted fliers in each study lounge informing residents about Earth Day (April 22nd). These fliers included easy ideas that residents could easily do like recycle more, reusing and saving power.
For this program, I will institute a recycling bin and trash bin to promote Earth Day and how students are able to make a difference in saving the planet.
We set up collection bins for cans and plastic bottles. Iowa has 5 cent deposits. We will turn in the cans and bottles for donation to Hawks Ridge Relay For Life fund.

CA Alex Rae Cooper and CA Christian Lesko put on a program of tie dye! It was held in the open area behind Sunset at 2:00pm on Saturday. There was free pizza, cookies and ice cold water provided for the residents. Residents were informed to bring their own items to add some color to and spice up. It was a free event that was created to bring people together on a bright and sunny day and have fun!
Residents will recycle for two weeks. They will show us their bags before they dispose so we can keep track. The apartment with the most recycled items will win a pizza party.
