Kermit wasn’t exactly right when he said it isn’t easy being green.  Thanks to students in the Global Environmental Change and Sustainability major it’s about to get a whole lot easier to be green and recycle your waste on the Homewood Campus. For their capstone project seniors Ruthie Burrows and Margaret Keener produced a short video to simplify and summarize how to sort your waste into the color coded bins on campus.

Homewood campus’ recycling rate was 35% last academic year and we are hoping to move up to 40% this year. We need everyone to pitch in and keep recyclable and compostable material out of the incinerator for our planet, our health and our reputation as a leader in sustainability!
