We’re Eco-Friendly

Team Paragon has done many things this year to remain Eco-Friendly. Here are some of the things that we do:

  • Our website runs on renewable power.
  • We hold Bottle and Can drives to collect items for recycling.
  • Instead of buying disposable cups and plates, we use plastic washable cups and plates to reduce the amount of trash that we produce.
  • We re-use pieces from previous bots.
  • We have recycling nights were we take apart donated materials from our sponsors. Not only does this reduce the load on our landfills, but it also brings in money for our team to help out with fundraising.
  • The furniture that is used in our build site was going to thrown in the trash until it was donated by our sponsors.

Though this may not be a lot to save the world, we are trying our best to help the environment any way we can.
