ECO-Reps

The Eco-Reps are enthusiastic student sustainability educators that focus on campus sustainability issues. Through Eco M&Cs, Eco-Hall events, whiteboards in the  dining halls, Newsflush announcements, Eco-Boards in the dorms, and our Facebook page,  we hope to inspire our fellow students to live more sustainably.

We are knowledgeable about numerous topics such as recycling, energy use, and composting. We work with Facilities Management, Dining Services, the Dean of Students, Residential Life, LITS, The Miller Worley Center for the Environment, and the President’s Office. Some of our more recent activities include Eco-Orientation for new students, recycling through the TerraCycle chip brigade and being an organizer of MHC’s first Sustainability Week.

Please contact the Eco-Reps with questions or suggestions. Follow us on Facebook.

I love hiking, biking, snow boarding and dancing. I feel that the relationship between people and the environment we depend on and interact with is undervalued. As an Eco-Rep, I'm excited to increase awareness of methods to reduce energy consumption and production of waste on campus and in the community. For all the amazing things that nature and this earth have given to us, we ought to respect and preserve it so future generations may enjoy it as we do.
