Northern Michigan University’s Sustainability Advisory Council is hosting the second annual zero-waste challenge. This event will take place during the NMU-Alabama Huntsville men’s hockey game at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, at the Berry Events Center.
The challenge is on and off the ice, as all game attendees will visit the zero-waste stations to sort their trash items into compost or recycling. In partnership with Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority, everything collected will be composted or recycled therefore diverting as many materials as possible from the landfill.
By hosting this event, the sustainability council encourages the NMU campus and local community to create less waste and a positive impact for the future. The Sustainability Advisory Council’s long-term goal is to "create a lasting impact on the university where sustainability is part of our campus culture and identity."
