On Saturday, November 14th UC Berkeley will not only be competing on the football field against Oregon State, but also against other universities across the nation in the Gameday Recycling Challenge and the Pac-12 Zero Waste Bowl! These two challenges are a friendly and spirited way for colleges and universities to promote waste reduction at their football games. Each campus participating selects one of their home games to use as their competition game. The Gameday Recycling Challenge is a national competition that scores campuses on their gameday waste diversion rate and the Pac-12 Zero Waste Bowl scores campuses on partnership participation, fan engagement, diversion rate, and innovation.
At the game, there will be a Cal Zero Waste table providing more information about these challenges as well as information about UC Berkeley’s zero waste by 2020 goal and how to achieve it. The Cal Zero Waste team will also have fun activities and opportunities to win prizes! Enter into the social media contest by posting a photo and #GoBearsGoGreen and #CalZeroWaste to win the grand prizes.
