Back in August of this year, Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins was the first institution to add a ‘trail run’ for the UnEARTH Netted Bags. So long as there were no security issues, the bags would be allowed into all games and events by security staff.
What Did We Have to Do to Get The UnEARTH Netted Bag Approved at CSU??
Security is no small feat at a University that has so many attendees coming to each of their events, and for good reason.
The first step involved more than a few meetings with various members of the Athletic Department and Administration. This lead to conversations with the Police Department on campus and Landmark Security. Landmark Security is a trusted event security staffing company. They provide event security staff to many different institutions and events in the United States. They span across Colorado, Wyoming, California, Arkansas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania and more. You can learn more about them here.
Colorado State University has been recognized for their STARS Platinum rating for their efforts in sustainability. The University takes pride in their achievement of such sustainable goals and initiatives, and are always looking to improve (hint hint.)
We at UnEARTH wanted to begin the Clear Bag Not Plastic Movement at CSU. Firstly because Go Rams! (We are alumni.) But also because we strongly believe that students base their decision off of how sustainable an institution is – this was true in both of our cases. In fact, “91 percent of students “agree their place of study should actively incorporate and promote sustainable development.”
Since CSU began accepting the UnEARTH Netted Bag an an approved bag type to the Clear Bag Policy, other Universities have jumped on board. The #clearbagnotplastic movement and it is growing quickly! CSU Logo’d bags are for sale in the Lory Student Center Bookstore. You can also find them at the Ram Zone Store in Old Town Fort Collins. We just added them to our online shop too!
This trail ran began back in August and to date there have been no issues.
