A group of young campers learned about ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle at the 2011 Transportation Fair.

These girls came in with an entire Folger's can of old batteries. They had been saving up for a while to recycle!

By teaching our youth about sustainability, WVUWeCan aims to generate awareness within the local community.

That's dedication! This participant of WVU Sustainability Awareness Week had been saving her old batteries to recycle for a while. They filled up the whole Folger's can!

A student happily models her new WVU t-shirt, made out of 100% recycled materials.

The Blue and Gold Mine Sale is held the Saturday after WVU graduation. Mark your calendars for May 24th, 2008!

In 2007, the Blue and Gold Mine Sale collected 30 tons of material during finals week!

The sale is popular, so get there early, bring your cash, and be ready to hunt for barigains! Volunteers operate a concession stand with coffee, donuts, and other refreshments for hungry shoppers.
