Plastic Bag Swap

What: Stop by one of our tables to exchange your plastic bags (at least five) for a reusable sack.

When: March 6, 2017 from 12pm to 1pm

Where: STEPS Concourse AND the UC Upper Cort

Why: Did you know that plastic won't fully degrade for 1000 years after it's produced and no more than 3% of plastic bags are recycled worldwide?* The good news is that Lehigh will recycle your plastic bags! Collection bins can be found at 7 locations on campus including STEPS Concourse, Rauch Business Center, Linderman Library, EWFM Library, Lamberton Hall, University Center, and Iacocca Hall.

Who: Brought to you by the Office of Sustainability
