One Step Toward a Greener Tomorrow

Staff from the Recycling and Reuse Technology Transfer Center (RRTTC) will be located at a table in Maucker Union across from Chats. Students will have the opportunity to sign a pledge to take one step toward being greener in their daily lives. Students pledging to be more sustainable will receive a gift from the RRTTC. Staff will also talk about what it means to be green and provide ideas on how to be more sustainable. 

Healthy Communities Film: "9000 Needles" and "Community Acupuncture"

The films "9,000 Needles" and "Community Acupuncture" both explore the use of acupuncture as a healing method. "9,000 Needles" tells the story of Devin Dearth, a 40-year-old who suffered a stroke and turned to acupuncture therapy. "Community Acupuncture" is a documentary chronicling Working Class Acupuncture, a clinic that opened in Portland, Ore. in 2002. Tara Anderson, local acupuncturist, will speak following the showing of the films.

Craft, Plant and Reuse

Reuse this Season! Reduce stress before finals with a reusable material craft. Help reuse an old dish by decorating it with sharpie and then putting in the oven to set. This craft is a great way to reuse something, give it a new purpose and to reduce waste.

We will be also be giving away some small plants courtesy of the UNI Botanical Center that will be accompanied by your choice of teacup to plant it in. These plants are small and only need watering every few weeks, making them an ideal plant for a dorm setting!
