Did you know:
You can be a more Sustainable Saluki during Halloween? There are many creative ways you can make a difference!
Salukis Take Action:
Try swapping in some sustainable Halloween alternatives:
- Glitter: Plastic-based glitter is bad for the environment; there is a plant-based alternative
- Paint: Many face paints can contain harmful chemicals; Natural Face Paint is a safer and more environmentally friendly option! This promotes Good Health and Well-being- Goal 3.
- Candy: Many candy companies use unethical means of production, here are a few companies that practice more sustainable methods. This supports Goal 8- Decent Work, among others.
- Make sure to recycle all your glass, paper and aluminum waste so that it doesn't end up in a landfill. If you don't have a bin at home, you can drop it off at the Southern Recycling Center.
Don't forget about Saluki Safety! Here are some helpful tips and resources to have fun this holiday and keep yourself, and those around you safe: Good Health-Goal 3.
- The Night Safety Transit: Transport service provided for students on and off campus Monday through Friday. For more information click here.
- The Saluki Express: Transportation service offered throughout the week. Their Late Night route is offered on the weekends and ends at 2:30 am.
There are more exciting campus events coming up!
On Nov. 10, Touch of Nature is having Trail Stewardship Days, which allow volunteers to help build trails while learning new skills. By creating new hiking trails we are supporting Goal 15- Life on Land and Goal 3- Good Health.
