Game Day Sustainability
The Notre Dame Athletics Department is proud to partner with the Office of Sustainability in spreading the message to our fans on how we can all be more green.  This athletics season, with the help of Dr. Ed Stech from the Nuclear Science lab, videos will be shown at home football, hockey, volleyball and men’s and women’s basketball games that show the proper way for our fans to recycle in our venues.  We were also able to showcase our food rescue mission at the Shamrock Series game in Yankee Stadium.

Below you can view the videos that are featured in our venues.  Click here to view the 2017 Game Day Sustainability themes and videos
