Orange "going green" against Notre Dame
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The S.U. football team will take on Notre Dame tomorrow in South Bend, Indiana. But, as part of NBC's National Green Week, it's not the only competition going on between the two schools.
Through a website known as Carbon Rally, football fans can get involved with helping the environment. A carbon reduction amount is tallied up by fans accepting challenges to improve the environment.
Challenges include everything from car-pooling to work to recycling your old cell phone.
The school with the highest tally gets $10,000 toward making its campus more eco-friendly.
"It's also nice to show that S.U. is involved in sustainable efforts and to get a large group of people together for this effort so the competition aside it's great to see so many people are turning out to participate in the carbon rally," said S.U. News Services Associate Director Sarah Miller.
