The University of South Carolina EcoReps homecoming float was an alarming reminder that, as a university, Carolina produces nearly 3,000 lbs. of waste in just three hours. The trash cube they used as their float was full of many recyclable items, all of which were pulled from trash dumpsters. The EcoReps float reminded students, faculty and staff that reducing the carbon footprint can be as easy as recycling a portion of the vast amount of waste produced.
