Fifth Annual Green Game Next Wednesday

Berea College

The Office of Sustainability, BC Athletics, and Facilities Grounds Crew invite you to our annual Carbon Neutral “Green” Basketball Game Wednesday, February 6.  Come cheer on our Women Mountaineers for one of their last home games at 6:00 PM at Seabury, and enjoy half time surprises!

Dining services will be serving dinner that night at Seabury Center 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM and will be ZERO WASTE to compliment our carbon neutral game.

STUDENTS:  Earn EcoChallenge points for your residence halls by attending the game and getting your Bcard scanned.

What makes the game carbon neutral?  We measure the amount of energy/emissions it takes to heat and light Seabury during the game and the emissions generated from the opposing team’s round trip travel.  Next we determine how many TREES it takes to scrub that much carbon out of the atmosphere in one year’s time and plant those trees on campus during Earth Day week.

The event is open to everyone – including city of Berea community members!

 

Did you know Berea College was named a Tree Campus USA school thanks to our commitment to effectively manage trees and engage students?  Find out more here.
