Green homecomings don’t just happen. The amount of planning, communicating, deciding what makes a homecoming celebration green and then putting things into motion to make it all happen/work takes a Herculean effort. And then there’s the input, cooperation and support of many, many people. As a nationally recognized leader in sustainable campuses in the United States, UA has stepped up to take green to another level. Dumpster diving? Weighing the trash? Engaging the tailgaters and thousands of fans? That’s what it takes to create sustainable communities. This duo is part of the team making it happen and making it fun.
