MONTREAL, April 17, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Student Association of the School of Management at UQAM (AéESG), which represents nearly 13,000 students, yesterday launched its ''Change Your Cup'' project in conjunction with Earth Day. The event was held in Salon G, the student café, with Earth Day Quebec director Pierre Lussier and ESG UQAM Dean Ginette Legault in attendance. By donating to sustainable development projects 10 cents for every coffee sold in a disposable cup, this innovative project will raise $16,000 this year, and will continue to do so in future years. The first major sustainability project, currently in the feasibility study stage, is the installation of a vertical garden at UQAM.
