Tiger Blue Goes Green
We are all stewards of our home, Planet Earth. The University of Memphis community has demonstrated its deep commitment to this idea by launching a variety of projects and initiatives designed to conserve natural resources or to use them more effectively, as well as by imparting the concept of sustainability to its students, who will in turn carry it out into the greater community. From designing buildings that meet LEEDS standards, to conducting biodiesel research, to working in the ever-expanding TIGUrS community garden, tiger blue goes green!

CELEBRATE TIGER BLUE GOES GREEN
October 4 | 10 AM-2 PM
At the Student Plaza
Around the Fountain
Join us for the 14th Annual Tiger Blue Goes Green 2022, an exhibition fair at the University of Memphis celebrating our efforts toward sustainability. This year we are focusing on “Sustainable Food Systems: Zero Waste and Zero Hunger.” Did you know that 40% of food grown and produced in Memphis is wasted, and yet 1 in 5 people in Memphis are food insecure. Visit us at Tiger Blue Goes Green and find out how some of our exhibitors are addressing these concerns and what you can do to help. Be sure to grab a free event t-shirt and lunch on us while supplies last!
