(Portland, OR) – The Green Sports Alliance has unveiled a contest to help college sports programs kick start or upgrade a sustainability program in their stadiums—and enhance the visibility of all campus sustainability efforts.

The winning two campuses will receive ten brand new customizable recycling bins donated by Max-R or GreenDrop, a full compostable food service product upgrade donated by Eco-Products, and on-site expert sports facility assessments, workshops and recommendations from ESPN and CU Boulder sports sustainability experts.


The College Sports Sustainability Makeover Contest is designed to help all campus sustainability efforts by improving the campus environmental footprint, enhancing fan behaviors in-game and at home, and boosting overall campus reputation.

Two campuses will win the grand prize detailed above—so a campus has a great opportunity to bring home the bounty. There is no cost or obligation to enter the contest.

Winning campuses will be chosen on the basis of need, suitability, leverage, and likelihood of success. Any size campus in any level of sports affiliation can win.

The GSA’s sponsors and partners include Max-R, GreenDrop, Eco-Products, the University of Colorado Environmental Center, and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
