The annual One Thing Challenge is a competition between UW and Washington State University to see which campus is committed to being the greenest.

CHOSE ONE THING:
Wednesday, Nov. 19, join EcoReps for a clothing exchange available to all UW students!

T-shirts, sweatshirts, blouses, pants, shorts, shoes, hats, scarves - come drop off anything you don't want and in return you can have whatever is donated!
Keep in mind:
The application deadline has been extended for the RecycleMania 2015 Student Planning Committee winter quarter positions!
