Bowdoin’s Green Athletes held a recycling challenge at the Bowdoin College men’s basketball game against Colby College Friday, December 7.

Under the direction of Alex Tougas ’14 and Tricia Thibodeau ’13, 17.5 pounds of recycling and only 2.5 pounds of trash, the latter of which made up less than one bag, were generated. The rate of waste diversion from the landfill was thus 87.5%; at many prior games, this rate has been 0%.
