Striving to go green, the Office of Sustainability at Mason is raising awareness for green efforts on campus at a venue where trash seems to overflow: basketball games.
This Saturday’s basketball game against George Washington University will host an event called the Game Day Challenge. It’s a competition between different universities to see who can properly recycle and compost the most during a single sporting event.

For the first time, George Mason University will be using eco-friendly graduation gowns made entirely of recyclable materials at this year's commencement celebrations.
Known as “GreenWeaver” apparel, each gown is made out of fabric spun from molten plastic pellets from an average of 23 recycled plastic bottles, according to maker’s Oak Hall Cap & Gown’s website.
According to GMU Bookstore General Manager Barb Headley, the bookstore had been searching for some time for sustainable gowns and the “GreenWeaver” line fit.
Despite previous success, the future of the farmers market returning to the Fairfax Campus of George Mason University is uncertain.
