UCann Do Something!

Hello Friends! We have decided to donate the money we make from recycling cans to Do Something, Inc which is a non profit organization that encourages kids to do great things to help the community. We plan on donating money to Do Something so they can fund an environmental project created by kids who dream big! Here's a video explaining a little more about Do Something, Inc. Enjoy!

Huskies, Listen and Learn!

Jack Johnson knows what's up....

We suggest that all UConn students rip this onto their i-pods and listen to it on a daily basis....whenever you see an empty beer can on the streets of Carriage or an empty soda can on a table in the Union, think of this song and recycle!
