Published in Annual Report - 2009
Go Green, an ad-hoc committee of TC’s Student Senate founded in FY09 by Natalie A. Hadad (left) and Jaymie P. Stein, has led sustainability and eco-awareness efforts on campus. Highlights from this year include:
- Establishing Go Green presence at TC Management meetings, to ensure that sustainability matters on campus have a formalized voice at the administrative level;
- Hosting several community-wide workshops on recycling efforts and trash decomposition;
- Launching a pilot program to increase on-campus recycling, with clearly-marked bins in Horace Mann Hall;
- Awarding free tote bags, courtesy of West Side Market, for every 20 plastic bags collected as part of the First Annual TC Bag Drive;
- Organizing TC’s First Annual Rockin’ Earth Day Festival, headlined by activist and iconic folk singer Pete Seeger.
