Posted: October 3, 2007 / Last Updated: October 4, 2007
Denison University's Green Team is hosting a kick-off party at 8 p.m. on Thursday (Oct. 4) in Slayter Hall Student Union for "Water Wars," a month-long competition aimed at reducing students' water usage. The Green Team is a campus environmental group that promotes sustainability in the actions of students, faculty and administrators.
During the month, residence halls will compete against one another to significantly reduce their overall water usage. The winning hall or halls will receive funds to use in their building or to donate to an on-campus environmentally friendly cause of their choice. The winner will be the residence hall that reduces its water usage the most as measured by a percentage. The Green Team is encouraging reduced water usage recognizing that water is one of the planet's most precious finite resources.
