    Meetings Attending BGI meetings is a great way to stay up-to-date about green events happening at Purdue, learn about sustainability, and make a difference at Purdue! Updates & Project Work Each meeting, we share updates about sustainability-related events taking place at or near Purdue, both BGI events and events hosted by other organizations. You can see a summary of what's going on by joining our group chat or mailing list by filling out the form here . ​ Additionally, most meetings will be spent primarily in committees focusing on accomplishing project goals. You can read more about current projects on the Committees page. Reuse Seminars At least once per month, BGI hosts an activity during meetings teaching members ways they can live more sustainably in their daily lives. Past Reuse Seminars have focused on topics such as making vegan smoothies, vegan diets and recipes, creating "plarn" (yarn made from plastic bags), and thrift-shopping Halloween costumes. Green Feats Green Feats are a friendly way to challenge yourself to live more sustainably day-to-day and compete with other members for prizes! Past challenges have included minimizing single-use plastic, going vegetarian for a week, and watchinga sustainability-related documentary. 2-Hour Challenges Once per month, BGI will host a 2-Hour Challenge intended to quickly make a positive, green impact at or near Purdue. To facilitate these activities, both committees work together during at least one meeting per month to prepare for the challenge. Learn more and get involved at our 2-Hour Challenge page. Educational Speakers and Activities Occasionally, BGI hosts speakers or educational activities during meetings to learn about sustainability topics. Past speakers have included professors and the Grounds Manager at Purdue, who discussed what happens to Purdue's waste after it leaves campus. Green Elephant Party The last BGI meeting of the semester is our Green Elephant Party. Come to relax and de-stress before Finals and get some free food. We also have a gently-used item exchange: bring used school supplies or other items you no longer need if you wish and exchange or give them away to other members -- it keeps items out of the landfill and you could potentially pick up some free stuff!
