Our Current Projects

TerraCycle is a private U.S. recycling business headquartered in Trenton, New Jersey. It runs a volunteer-based curbside collection program to collect non-recyclable pre-consumer and post-consumer waste, and then partners with corporate donors to turn it into raw material to be used in new products. We are using Terracycle on campus to collect used dry erase markers, and turn them into something new!PDF icon terracycle.pdf

Ceseley's sustainability tip much like Paul's is "cutting meat and dairy out of your diet as frequently as possible because that industry has a really horrible environmental impact on our planet."

Use as little plastic as possible like reusable mesh produce bags, cloth shopping bags, reusable cups and straws. It goes a long way.
