Grand Valley seeks student Eco Reps

Posted on

The Sustainable Community Development Initiative is seeking students in the living centers to participate in the campus Eco Rep program.

Eco Reps are student representatives who promote sustainable initiatives, such as composting, recycling, and promoting and participating in Recyclemania! Volunteers will work with community councils or resident assistants in the living centers to educate students about the importance of sustainable practices and habits.

Eco Reps will also facilitate the Pizza Box Project, an initiative to take pizza boxes from living centers out of the waste stream and into a compost bin. During the start of the project during the 2012-2013 academic year, more than 27,500 pizza boxes were composted.

Students interested in signing up to be an Eco Rep can visit the table at Campus Life Night on September 3, from 7-9 p.m. in the Fieldhouse.
