SEAS the Moment
SEAS the Moment
The SEAS (Students for Environmental Awareness and Sustainability) club wanted to develop self-sustainability kits for student use. SEAS was interested in connecting with the Office of Sustainability, SEAS club, and GAF with the greater student body at UCCS. They believed that raising awareness of SEAS club and GAF through the opportunity to play sustainability themed games and win a kit that would enable any student to live a more sustainable daily life is a great way to achieve that. The daily items that they selected will enable any student to reduce their carbon footprint by giving them sustainable alternatives to single use products that they interact with on a day-to-day basis. They included the following items, specifically because of their ability to replace unsustainable products in our daily lives: metal straws, beeswax food wrap, tote bag, bamboo utensils, bamboo toothbrush, fair trade cotton napkin, and double-wall insulated travel mug/bottle. These items are often too expensive for some students to access on their own. By creating these kits they hoped to raise awareness about sustainable organizations that offer these products while also offering the student body the opportunity to increase their personal sustainable actions, reduce their carbon footprint, raise awareness about sustainability and environmentalist activism on campus and in the community, as well as increasing participation in SEAS club, the Office of Sustainability, and GAF.
