Earth Day 2013
Earth Day Celebration - Mind.Body.Planet.
April 18, 2013
We teamed up with UC Merced's pre-dental club, Project Smile, to bring you Mind.Body.Planet.
The event included educational games, prizes, an art competition and free food. Our goal was to educate students and staff about the waste-management programs we have on campus and in the community, as well as inform students about their health and wellness. We had almost 30 different booths for participants to choose from. If they visited four or more booths, they received free J&R Tacos!
Thank you so much to everyone who participated!
Watch this video to see some of our educational recycling games in action!
