Watch for the guys in the pink jumpsuits...and make a difference in your world

Who says you can't be stylin,' socially engaged, and sustainable all at the same time? Take a look at ICan, the student group that dons pink jumpsuits and donates bottle-deposit money to charitable organizations.

They'll be coming to campus locations near you this month (OK, well, not until you get back from spring break...) to collect your recyclable cans and bottles. They'll take your toss-aways, redeem the deposits, and donate the funds to ICare’s Relay for Life teams. (Relay for Life is a 12-hour benefit event for the American Cancer Society on March 29, 2008 at Barton Hall – Cornell University. Every cent redeemed from the ICan initiative will go to this cause.)

ICan will also be tabling at various locations throughout the month of March to collect recyclables as well.

If you cannot participate in the Saturday collections, take a minute to email ICan at, and they will come get your collectibles at your convenience.

And you can watch for ICan event updates on Facebook...right HERE.

So collect your cans and bottles, bag 'em up, and call or email the folks in the pink jumpsuits.

It couldn't be much easier to make a difference in your world....
