Nice Threads!

New Staff Shirts

New Staff Shirts

You may have noticed many of our employees are sporting brand new staff shirts featuring the Greensboro Science Center logo. This change means our staff has a large amount of old clothing to dispose of. Instead of tossing them in the trash and filling up our landfills, our Conservation Committee, made up of employee volunteers, found a wonderful solution for us: recycling fabric!

Old Shirts Being Recycled

Old Shirts Being Recycled

Staff members have filled collection bins with stacks of shirts to be recycled. Logos have been removed and the fabric can now be re-processed to make other textiles. This is just one example of the great ideas our Conservation Committee has developed to help our employees protect our planet. We’re proud of this team for coming up with such a wonderful sustainable solution for our old shirt surplus!
