Eco-friendly Organization training opportunity!
Dear Student Organizations,
The Green Gallaudet Environmental Organization serves an emerging movement of globally conscious citizens dedicated to improving the condition of our earth. The earth is facing an imminent catastrophic ecological collapse if human civilization continues on its current course.
Our green movement among organizations on Gallaudet campus not only makes sense for saving money but it also buys the source of comfort and credibility for a progressively concerned public.
If your organization attempt to promote environmentally conscious choices while hosting meetings, events, or parties, you will receive benefits in return, not just for the instant impact but for the long-term effects and savings. There is a misconception by some people that ‘going green’ is an inconvenience and has an expense, but you will be consuming less water, less electricity, and sending less to the landfill. The initiatives undertaken by your organization can make a positive impact on the world.
It is essential that as an organization you become aware of the green movement and actively look for opportunities to reduce your impact on the environment.
For the reasons above, Green Gallaudet is hosting a workshop directed at student organization officers, but anybody is more than welcome. Our workshop will talk about a variety of ways your organization can be more environment conscious. After completing the workshop, your organization will be added to the list of eco-friendly organizations on campus. A banner with list of eco-friendly organizations will be shown in Marketplace. An incentive such as winning prize money at end of the year is very possible!
Let us know if you are interested.
Green Gallaudet Team
