Give 1 - Get 1
The Concept: It’s simple-- we know that during high school you likely picked up a shirt or a pair of shorts or some other apparel while visiting other college campuses. Now that you are a Yellow Jacket we don’t think you really need those anymore.
The Plan: We’ve launched this new initiative to immediately engage our first-year class in Tech’s culture of sustainability. Bring a shirt or other piece of clothing from another college and we’ll give you a new Tech t-shirt. Then we’ll donate all contributed clothing to CHaRM (The Center for Hard to Recycle Materials), so they can help improve our environmental health.
The Purpose: Give 1 Get 1 is your chance to immediately engage in this ethos of sustainabilty. Georgia Tech and the surrounding community is a living, learning, laboratory for sustainability, from our Game Day Recycling Program that minimizes the amount of waste sent to landfills during home football games to our Smart Energy Campus Program designed to reduce energy consumption and increase building operational effectiveness.
