Distraction Of The Day: HUB Recycling Flash Mob

In a world where recycling becomes more and more important every single day, making sure that you throw out any reusable goods is a necessity. It seems that a group of Penn State students from the National Residence Hall Honorary, Assocation of Residence Hall Students, the EcoReps, and the Clown Nose Club decided to emphasize that point this past Friday, organizing a Recycling Flash Mob. This was the final event in a week-long Great Recycling Challenge put together by the EcoReps.

The flash mob participants left a plastic bottle sitting on the ground by the entrance to the HUB’s first floor. They patiently waited for a passerby to pick up the bottle and recycle it. Check out what happened when a student named Allison finally did:

Allison received a prize and a Creamery gift card for her environmental awareness.
