ISU Going Green

News

Indiana State University went green on Wednesday celebrating Earth Day.

Food, music and information booths were set up in the quad today showing how students can make a cleaner carbon foot print.

The university also showed off their new addition; offering over 100 new rental bikes.

The bikes are activated by an app and cost 50 cents per half hour.

When students are done riding, they simply return the bike to a rack and lock the bike ending their time.

“This gives them the option to have a greener effect instead of wasting gas or green house gases. This is the option just for them to ride a bike to campus.” — Caleb Law, Bike Share Manager

The bikes didn’t cost the university anything.

The systems that operate the bikes are powered by solar panels.
