Students, Faculty Join Forces for Earth Week

Earth Week

Victoria Parsells, an environmental science major from Laurens, hands a bag filled with plastic bottles to associate professor of environmental geology Daniel Pardieck, in conjunction with Lander University’s observance of Earth Week. The recycling drive was “very successful,” according to Parsells, who said that a Greenwood County Recycling Center truck was filled to the brim. A shred truck was also provided, and Parsells said that the 2-1/2 tons of paper processed were more than double what was shredded during Earth Week last year.
