The ocean is a big and beautiful place and all the more reason to make sure it stays that way. Come help support sustainable living by trading in your plastic bags for an eco-friendly UCR customized reusable bag. Enjoy some healthy snacks and healthy habits as we save the ocean one bag at a time.
Hi there! You are invited to come out to the Oban Poolhouse and learn how to be more eco-friendly from The Office of Sustainability. Now that California has become the first state to ban single-use plastic bags, you can come by and trade in plastic bags for a reusable drawstring bag or a reusable grocery bag. There will also be Pizza, drinks and a raffle for UCR Gear at the end of the program!
This is a program that will last all quarter and being sustainable is the main goal. This program is to encourage people to recycle their plastic bottles! One of the main motivator is that the residents will be able to see progress of their recycling because community goals will be created to buy things with the money accumulated.
This program is used to help students learn about sustainability. The students will be divided into two groups and will be given a small recycling trash and a normal trash can. They will then see who puts the correct recycling items in the write trash can. There will also be donuts provided for the residents.
Reuse Recycle and DECORATE! Finding affordable home decor can be impossible, so why not make your own. Come by the clubhouse to learn how to make your own Eco-friendly home art for your apartment to feel right at home.
This fair will seek to involve and enthuse residents about their impact on their surroundings by focusing on things like water conservation, reusing items that they would normally throw away, and even starting window gardens.
I'm focusing on sustainability education for the months of September and October. My board consists of mainly recycled materials that I've been collecting from residents over the past two weeks. The board consists of different facts about our carbon footprint, and ways in which each of us can improve on our consumption habbits
A flyer was made and posted to every fridge on move in day about what should be recycled and what should not be recycled.
Residents will get the chance to plant flowers or herbs in a recycled water bottle they decorated and learn the benefits of gardening.
This program will teach residence about the affects of every day waste on the environment. This hopefully will encourage students to understand the larger social issues that effect each of us everyday.
Residents will learn about internships opportunities in Santa Cruz and how to research for positions in their hometowns. As well as donate clothing/items for the Santa Cruz Homeless Project.
Small Scale Event #6
This event will take place on Earth Day and we will encourage all of our residents to recycle within our community here at Sebastian Village Apartments. We will flyer the property and visit each resident to remind them to recycle for Earth Day. Go Green!
We are promoting our residents to preserve our environment by participating in a recycling Riot!
For this program we will encourage residents to become more sustainable. We will have different stations that include: a "junk" swap (residents will bring clothes and books that they do not want and exchange it for another resident's unwanted items), bring a recyclable bottle/can for a raffle ticket, a game where residents learn what can and cannot be recycled, and we will give out Donuts.

Recycle day completion between my two buildings
Will be supplying and teaching residents, how to create their own self watering pots using 2-liter bottles and an old t-shirt. Will use the time to also discuss why it is important to conserve water due to the drought in California.
I will provide craft supplies, flower seeds, and potting soil so residents can transform their old bottles into makeshift flower pots. Residents will be instructed to bring empty plastic water bottles and I will also bring a few extra. I will also talk to residents about other ways they can "transform" old items into new ones--clothing, used paper, etc.
Come decorate boxes for your floor and bring bottles to see who can collect the most!
A pamphlet of information that will give some information about recycling and keeping our earth nice and green.
