Auburn Goes Green Game

Green Game

September 27, 2014



Join Auburn Athletics, IMG, the Office of Sustainability, Coca-Cola, Waste Reduction & Recycling Department, 91.1 WEGL, Student Alumni Association, Tailgate Guys, IMPACT, Eagle Eye, AU Tailgate Times, and the Sustainability Coalition for the Auburn Goes Green Game on September 27 to celebrate Auburn University's commitment to sustainability. Fans are invited to do their part in tailgating and attending this and every event in ways that conserve resources and protect the loveliest village on the plains. Sustainability initiatives will be highlighted on Gameday through activities at Fan Fest, on-field recognition for the Spirit of Sustainability award winners, and more. In addition, this year the Auburn Goes Green Game coincides with the Green Apple Day of Service of the United States Green Building Council, for which additional student volunteers will help with gameday recycling.  

Green Tailgating Tips

  • Choose aluminum and plastic over glass containers, and avoid styrofoam and plastic cups. Auburn only recycles plastic and aluminum  on Gameday, so pick items you can recycle!
  • Look for the volunteers in bright green shirts distributing recycling bags for your tailgate, as well as the 300+ recycling bins on campus to give your plastic and aluminum a new life.
  • Ditch the disposable and pick the reusable to save money and waste less. Examples include reusable plates, cups, utensils, tablecloths, etc.
  • Reduce air pollution on Gameday by riding Tiger Transit and carpooling with others.
  • Shop at your local farmer's market for your Gameday spread to support local business and have the freshest food.
