PAST ACTIVITY

Some of the programs the CGC has successfully implemented include the following:

  • Creation of several large, well-marked receptacles for easier recycling across campus. A Technotrash, or e-waste recycling program, has also been implemented.
  • Establishment of a commuter route between Montpelier and the law school using Stagecoach Transportation Service’s local shuttle bus.
  • Installation of a solar-powered charging station for electric cars.
  • Establishment of a composting program designed to deal with much of the waste generated on campus, including all cafeteria food waste.
  • Providing educational materials on green practices and resources to incoming students each fall CGC via a reusable cloth tote bag, and maintaining a strong presence during the week-long Earth Day festivities each spring. Hands-on, creative activities have included smashing incandescent light bulbs to receive free energy efficient CFL light bulbs, blind taste testing bottled vs. tap water, and operating a bicycle-powered smoothie bar.
