MIAMI, FL – The University of Miami has been celebrating everyday of EARTH Week with a new and exciting event to raise awareness for environmental sustainability! IDEAS For UM was in charge of Tuesday’s Energy Conservation Day for the campus. Thanks to Sun Electronics, one of the worlds largest solar panel manufacturers, we were given an entire 195 Watt Solar Panel Setup to make Solar Powered Smoothies for the students. We installed the solar panel in the center of campus and made delicious smoothies for those who brought their own cup, to reduce plastic usage and waste.
Thanks to the UM Student Government for donating a ton of fresh and ORGANIC fruits and apple juice for our smoothies. The event was a huge success, the solar panel captured a lot of attention and we have plenty of new people registered with IDEAS to get involved next semester. Our school year is coming to a close but we’ve got some major things in store for next semester. Stay Tuned!
