Make No Impact

White collar, blue collar?  How about a Green Collar job?  Better yet, how about a Green economy, a green world!

No Impact week is a chance of the Georgia Southern Community to get green with a week-long carbon cleanse.  Just by lowering your impact with a few changes you can help benefit the planet AND your life.

These changes to your everyday life are not just limited to chucking a plastic bottle into the recycling bin or carpooling once a week.  Simple everyday changes can make the biggest impacts and change, not only the environment, but the economy as well!

This No Impact Week Georgia Southern has the pleasure of welcoming keynote speaker Van Jones to Statesboro.  Jones is an advocate for people-powered innovations and is eager to get folks moving and grooving with the green movement.

It’s not just some “hip” thing to do anymore.  The more we try to preserve the planet now the more there will be in the future and the more enriched your life will be.
