Our next meeting is Tuesday, April 3 at 11am in FLITE 214.
New members are always welcome!
Earth Week 2018 runs from April 16 to April 20!
An organization dedicated to excellence in sustainability. We strive to improve our campus and the environment through the act of providing sustainability based education, information, activities, and events. One of our major goals is to make recycling more easily accessible to all students and faculty. The cornerstone of the group is the 3 Rs mentality, which is reduce, reuse, and recycle, as well as its relation to the economy, culture, and human progression. A perfect group for those interested in recycling on campus, alternative energy, resource management, environmental issues, sustainable business practice, or just looking for volunteer hours. BSA hosts multiple events per semester, ending each year with a host of Earth Week festivities. BSA encourages all members to get involved and provides many opportunities for volunteering and leadership. Everyone is always welcome at any of our meetings and no dress code is required.

Why should people join? What makes your group special? What will students gain by being a member?
We are advocates of a more sustainable future, aimed at ensuring a safer, healthier, and more equal world for future generations. We are currently working on implementing recycling campus-wide. We have also started a new program that has helped us take members to large music festivals such as Electric Forest to work on green teams and we hope to expand on this project further this year.
Does your group have a fundraising, volunteer, or service initiative? Do you consistently work with a non profit organization?
We provide an ample amount of opportunities in volunteer and service work, benefiting various local organizations in the Big Rapids and West Michigan areas. Additionally, fundraising efforts are conducted every year to benefit non-profits geared at causes related to sustainability, including the Pollinator Partnership. We are always seeking new opportunities to increase the the positive impact we can have as stewards of the planet.
