Ohio State Students Challenged to ‘Out-Green’ Michigan Wolverines

The Undergraduate Student Government’s sustainability committee is giving students a chance to beat Michigan this week as part of their plan to make the campus “greener.”

“Out-Green the Wolverines” is scheduled for this Tuesday — Thursday in The Great Hall at the Ohio Union from 10 a.m. — 9 p.m. and will allow students to recycle at least five plastic bags in exchange for a T-shirt and swap inefficient light bulbs for more efficient fluorescent bulbs for free.

Dustin Homan, project director and a fourth-year in agricultural and extension education, said he hopes this event will help single Ohio State out as a leader in “green” practices and will reflect the student population’s environmental goals.

“Nick (Messenger) and Emily (DeDonato), president and vice president of USG, respectively, created the sustainability committee this year because they believed sustainability was a growing concern among students,” Homan said. “They wanted USG to help Ohio State become a leader in student-led, green initiatives.”
