Volunteer

There are a variety of ways to volunteer in Southeast Texas:

 

LU Green Squad

The LU Green Squad is an organization for everyone in the 鶹ӳӰ community – students, staff and faculty. They help with recycling, planning green events on campus and spreading the word about sustainability. You are welcome to join our group whether you want to simply show support, keep up with our progress, or become actively involved.

Some of our past activities include distributing recycling bins to every dorm room, making a bottle cap mosaic for Earth Week and helping with the South Park Community Garden.

Green Squad Tips for Living Green:

  • Reduce! - use reusable bags and bottles instead of single-use plastics
  • Reuse! - find other uses for items like jars, clothing and plastic bottles
  • Recycle! - help spread the word about recycling on campus, at home and at work
  • Purchase items made from recycled materials – pens from recycled plastic, paper that is made from recycled paper, etc.
