Students Launch #GoGreenUCF Social Media Campaign

University of Central Florida students Christina Astore, Angela DeJesus, and Catherine Samarista have recently launched a social media campaign for IDEAS For UCF as a project for their network digital ecologies assignment. The campaign which uses the hashtag #GoGreenUCF encourages a lot of important sustainable practices for the university, including turning in old books for recycling, the reuse of old clothes for other students, and filling up reusable bottles from the water fountains rather than buying single-use plastic bottles.

Just because there’s no container for it doesn’t mean you can’t #recycle. #GoGreenUCF
