Reuse your lanyardsReduce, Reuse and Recycle are known as the three Rs. The three Rs help us cut down on the amount of waste that we throw away—they can also save us money, energy and natural resources and simplify our lives. The three Rs also help us to achieve ASU’s Zero Waste goal.

Reduce: BYOL (Bring your own lanyard)

Anyone who has attended or worked a Fulton Schools event has a stack of lanyards taking up space. Have you ever thought to yourself, “What should I do with all of these?” The first step in achieving the three Rs is bring your own the next time you attend or volunteer for an event. Do you have a favorite lanyard? Check with the volunteer coordinator or event check in table and ask if you can use your own and add the provided name insert. If you have a Fulton Schools magnetic name tag, that can also be a good substitute for a lanyard or a peel-and-stick name tag at some events. If you are not sure what’s appropriate, just ask the event coordinator for guidance.


Your lanyard collection can have another useful life. The Fulton Schools of Engineering Events office reuses clean lanyards and name tag sleeves. The office collects lanyards after events (see the volunteer info provided to you at events for more information) OR you can send lanyards via campus mail to Engineering Communications, Mail Code 9309, OR you can drop off lanyards in the collection box in the Brickyard, 6th floor, outside 668 (behind the TV area).


You can recycle paper name tag inserts, maps and schedules in the blue barrel.
