                  Implementation of an Improved Recycling Program at USCB (2020).

                  Ms. Claudia Doll (B.S. Biology) who was the 2018/2019 president, started the project,
                  along with Dr. D'Antonio.  The goal was to allow USCB to have single-stream recycling.
                  USCB has a student enrollment of 2100 students with 300 faculty and staff.

                  The single-stream recycling program started in January of 2020 after receiving funding
                  from a crowd-funding campaign through Experiment.

                  The recycling program was implemented on all campuses, in which all faculty and
                  staff were provided with blue recycling bins for their offices, recycling videos were
                  created that showed how to properly recycle plastics, paper & cardboard, and metals.

                  Outdoor blue recycling receptacles were placed in strategic locations on all three USCB
                  campuses that was supported by a 2020 Palmetto Pride Litter Prevention Grant.

                  The Environmental Club at USCB was featured in the Bluffton Sun for the project.
                  Gray, L. (16 December 2019) USCB Bluffton to introduce single-stream recycling.

                The Greenhouse at USC Beaufort (2017).

                 In the spring semester of 2017, substantial developments were made to the USC
                 Beaufort greenhouse by the environmental club members and organic vegetable
                 gardening took place.  Since that year, the greenhouse continues to operate.
