Recyclemania Feels So Good

This year marks the eighth year Tufts Recycles has participated in RecycleMania, an eight week long competition among colleges and universities to see who can reduce their waste the most. This year, the Tufts Eco-Reps have stepped their game up with a catchy recycle-themed parody.

Check it out below and remember: you can recycle your daily Tufts Daily, plastic take out containers, paper cups and their plastic lids, juice and cardboard boxes, yogurt containers and more!

TuftsRecycles! Sends Shoes to Africa

Last semester, the TuftsRecyles! Team put a recycling bin for shoes in the Tisch Sports Center. The project was a partnership with Rerun Shoes, a full-service footwear recycling company, that aims to remove usable shoes from waste lots in North America while supporting sustainable microbusinesses in the African Tropics.

TuftsRecycles! recently updated their blog announcing that the are sending their first full box of shoes to secondhand shoe vendors in Mali, Guinea and Liberia. Check out the photo below and visit their blog for more details.
