Mark Grafton and Carlos Pollo, Co-founders of IDEAS UF, never imagined their hard work paying off in such a short time. After establishing the chapter officially in January 2011 — the 1st semester as a Registered Student Organization (RSO) — the IDEAS UF chapter was awarded the “Sustainable Solutions Award – Honorable Mention” by the Office of Sustainability for their innovative solutions to plastic bag consumption by building a Bike-powered sewing machine to make T-totes!
Congrats to all IDEAS UF members for your hard work and dedication to the movement! Let’s Keep It Up!!
