The Bag Monster is baaaaack. She/he/they/it regularly puts in an appearance on the last day of Yale’s annual Celebrate Sustainability week. Cohosted by Yale Landscape and Grounds and the Office of Sustainability, the week included a recycling game, a planting party, and an opportunity to check out Yale’s new zero-emission landscape equipment (shown here). And, of course: the return of the monster with the message. “I’m not going to lie,” says Oren Aviad ’25, who wore the costume this year and is a member of both the women’s gymnastics team and Bulldog Sustainability. “It was pretty hot.” And she means the temperature, not the fame.
