Energy Hub had the pleasure of having Wally from the Office of Sustainability come in to teach us about Bottle Biology. This project is to give everyone a hands on experience in sustainability, by planting herbs in up-cycled  water bottles collected from Camp Randall. Bottle Biology uses upcycled plastic bottles to facilitate natural processes on a small scale, for learning and experimentation. For information on how to make your own bottle biology visit their website by clicking here.
