Iowa State University Students in Free Enterprise
ISU SIFE(Students in Free Enterprise) is collaborating with Interstate All Battery to help raise awareness of the recycling of batteries with the 1st annual Battery Recycling Competition. Also EH&S will be assisting with proper handling of the batteries. 10 organizations have been selected to participate in a battery recycling contest. We challenge each organization to collect as many batteries as possible with creativity and media attention. Each organization is encouraged to reach out to the Ames and Iowa State Community. The goal of the contest is to make others aware of the importance of battery recycling and the need to switch over to rechargeable.
The Sam’s Club Environmental Sustainability Challenge provides the opportunity
for SIFE teams and their local Sam’s club associates to work together to help Sam’s club
members of small businesses to raise the quality of life and standard of living through
environmentally sustainable practices in their operations, facilities and community. (SIFE USA,
2009) More information can b found at sifesams.org .
