Flagler College students received a convenient and eco-friendly service last Thursday at the second annual “Love Your Planet” event.
The Faculty Senate Sustainability Committee provided extra bike space around campus and the downtown area, as well as a bike valet service to raise carbon-footprint awareness by encouraging students to ride their bike, car pool or walk to campus.
“It’s something that we want people to do every day, but we decided this day would be the awareness raising initiative and that we would offer bike valet since our bike racks are so full,” Director of College Relations for Flagler College, Laura Stevenson-Dumas said.

Shirley is not alone.
