Rhode Island College Green-Up Clean-Up Day Bigger Than Ever
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
"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.
