Today Team Illinois promoted the Re_home project at the “Go Green on Green Street” event in Champaign. The event was organized by Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) and the Illinois Green Business Association (IGBA) in order to raise awareness of sustainability in the community. Over 30 informational booths were setup near the Alma Mater on campus in order to educate the community about sustainable practices and opportunities to get involved with numerous sustainability-focused clubs and projects like the Solar Decathlon. The event had a large turnout including students, professors, community members, and campus visitors. Team Illinois was able to promote the Re_home project, educate people about the Solar Decathlon, and answer questions about sustainable technologies and the Re_home design. “Go Green on Green Street” was a great promotional opportunity for Team Illinois and allowed us to spread the word about the exciting months ahead.
