Please Return Eclipse Glasses

We hope you enjoyed the solar eclipse on April 8! The Physics Department handed out over 2000 eclipse glasses and we’d like to recycle them.

We are donating the used eclipse glasses to the Astronomers Without Borders recycling program. Thousands of donated glasses will be recycled and vetted for reusability and given to those who need them for outreach and educational programs around the world. Since 2008, Astronomers Without Borders has been sending solar eclipse glasses to many different regions of the world, from Africa to Asia.

Boxes will be out through the end of Finals Week. Please return glasses to:

  • Physics
  • Campus Safety
  • the Bookstore
  • the Library

Help us support people on this Earth so that everyone can enjoy nature. Make education borderless! 🙂
