BYU Recycling and the BYU Earth Stewardship Club hosted its annual cardboard castle event in front of the Wilkinson Student Center on Thursday, Mar. 24, 2016.

Students seized the opportunity to show off their creativity, covering a large cardboard castle in graffiti.

The fun was paired with purpose: to raise student awareness of environmental issues and recycling.

“We are encouraging students to be more environmentally mindful,” club member Neil Reed said.

The Earth Stewardship club also used the event to promote a thank-you letter to the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The letter originated from the LDS Earth Stewardship organization.

The letter acknowledges recent Church environmental actions, and thanks the Church leaders for “efforts to teach the importance and to demonstrate wise stewardship.” Those interested can sign the letter by going to the LDS Earth Stewardship website.

The BYU Earth Stewardship Club changed its name this year from the BYU Eco-Response Club.
