Background:

This afternoon (Thursday, April 12) from 12:30pm-2:30pm, students, faculty and staff will be clearing debris from R. Stephen Hawley Drive, following by a pizza party in the GCC cafeteria.

The Street Clean-Up is a prelude to the 7th Annual Cool Kids! ECO-Fest, which is fun-filled day aimed at increasing awareness of the environment in conjunction with Earth Day.

Participants at ECO-Fest earn ECO-raffle tickets by taking part in 35 indoor and outdoor activities including contributing E-Waste (old electronics such as computers, cell phones, video games and televisions), old rubber sneakers, and worn American flags for ‘green’ disposal; watching demonstrations of the “Big Foot Baler” as it wraps agricultural plastic waste for recycling into other plastic molded items; observing and learning about wildlife; and the end-of-the-day ECO-raffle of great green prizes, including a 21-speed mountain bike (winner must be present to claim).
