More Ways to Get Involved
Students: There are lots of ways individuals can contribute to the sustainability effort here at SUNY Orange. Start small -- walk to work or school if possible; share a ride to save fuel, take reusable shopping bags when purchasing items, turn off lights when leaving a room, don't idle your car engine unnecessarily. These are just a few ideas, but individual efforts add up to a big result.
Any student clubs that wish to join the College’s sustainability efforts are encouraged to contact Student Activities or have their advisor speak with Dr. Joe Zurovchak, chair of the College’s Sustainability Committee.
Faculty: Infuse sustainability topics into your lesson plans, employ technology when possible, talk with students about responsible printing, use the AASHE web site for information and contact the Center for Teaching and Learning for additional support.
The College operates an e-waste recycling program in an effort to keep toxic electronic waste from entering landfills. To recycle e-waste (any electronic components) from your department, contact the Help Desk to arrange for pickup.
The College is also in the early stages of planning for an Earth Day event. More details will follow but this will be a great opportunity for folks from all corners of campus to support sustainability and get involved!
