This week’s Quick Tip!
Two percent of the world’s supply of oil is turned into water bottles!
As few as 20 percent of water bottles are recycled, and by law they cannot be turned into more water bottles as they are considered contaminated by human contact. Try drinking tap water – out of a reusable bottle or pitcher. Buy a water filter if it makes you feel better.
Do you know what’s in bottled water?
Do you know who checks the quality of bottled water?
Fisher Goes Green
Thank you for attending and contributing to our Recycling Drive and Sustainability Fair on March 14,2013. There are more details on the Activities page.
Welcome to Fisher Goes Green, THE place to find out more about the environment, and what St. John Fisher College is doing to keep our campus – and our planet – clean, safe, and healthy. This site is maintained by the Recycling and Sustainability Committee.
Monroe County law requires that everyone recycle certain materials, but we are about more than just recycling. We want to make sure that the Fisher Community practices the three R's.
Why Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle? Because we must all practice Sustainability:
Our Committee has sponsored an Earth Day cleanup and planting projects for many years, and we want to spread our work even farther. We participated in the nationwide competition called RecycleMania for two years; we held our first Sustainability Fair in 2009, bringing to campus committed individuals from such varied groups as the Sierra Club, Genesee Land Trust, Monroe County Water Education Collaborative, and GrowMonroe. We also host an annual electronics recycling collection with Regional Computer Recycling & Recovery.
You may contact members of the Recycling and Sustainability Committee via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
In addition to information about our ongoing Green activities, this site provides informational and educational links to websites to help you learn more about the environment, and what you personally can do to help:
