Plastic Bag Swap 2018

As part of Recyclemania, the Office of Sustainability is hosting a plastic bag swap.  Students, faculty, and staff will be able to trade in 5 or more plastic bags and, in turn, receive a free reusable bag.

When: February 26th and 28th, 2018 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Where: STEPS Concourse 

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 recycles 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
