Green Team Sponsors Challenge!

The Go Green Challenge takes place in February at IVVC. Each program is challenged to save their aluminum cans, and the class with the highest weight wins a pizza party!

This 3rd annual challenge is sponsored by the IVVC Green Team. Members publicize the contest, conduct weekly weighing, and recycle the aluminum.


Aluminum Recycling Facts

  • Aluminum cans are the premiere example of a recyclable waste. Recycling aluminum requires less than five percent of the energy required to make it.
  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to power a television for up to three hours.
  • A used aluminum can is recycled and back on the grocery shelf as a new can in as little as 60 days.
  • Over 80,000,000,000 aluminum soda cans are used every year.
  • Recycling 1 ton of aluminum cans conserves the equivalent of 1,665 gallons of gasoline.
