Rhode Island College Green-Up Clean-Up Day Bigger Than Ever

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

 

Rhode Island College president Nancy Carriuolo spent Saturday getting things cleaned up in the RIC community.

Rhode Island College President Nancy Carriuolo, Congressman David Cicilline joined RIC faculty, staff and community members for the annual RIC Green-Up Clean-Up day, held to help beautify the college campus and promote school pride within the community. The largest event to date, over 130 volunteers from 20 different campus groups and organizations gathered to clean up litter from key spots around campus. The event was sponsored by Lowe’s, Stop and Shop and the Henry Barnard School Parent Association.

"Rhode Island College is committed to maintaining a sustainable campus in which all our faculty, students and staff can take pride," said President Carriuolo. "This year's Clean-up Green-up was Rhode Island College's most successful to date, and the wonderful support we received for this event illustrates that the community is equally committed to this mission. It is rewarding to have so many community members actively engaged in our mission to keep our campus beautiful."

Goodwill Industries of Rhode Island also got involved with the clean-up effort by offering free electronics (e-waste) recycling and collecting gently used clothing, footwear, and household linens and accessories that will help fund its programs to train Rhode Islanders with disabilities and other employment barriers.

RIC has taken on a number of green projects. Its Fruit Hill Farmers Market will be open for two more Thursday this season, producing soaps, honey, bread and baked goods, herbs, and more. The school also maintains its own beehive and community garden, led by the college's first ever susainability coordinator, Jim Murphy. To read more about RIC's green initiatives, click here.
