Meet the 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, and Eco-Boards in the halls, we hope to inspire our fellow students to live more sustainably. We are knowledgeable about numerous topics such as recycling, energy use, and composting. Some of our recent activities include Eco-Orientation for new students, recycling through the TerraCycle chip brigade and organizing MHC’s War-of-the-Watts competition.

We operate under the umbrella of the Miller Worley Center for the Environment and also work closely with Dining Services, the Dean of Students, Residential Life, LITS, and the President’s Office. In collaboration with Facilities Management, Eco-Reps help students live green at MHC by providing students and staff with energy-efficient LED lightbulbs and recycling bins.

Please contact the Eco-Reps with questions or suggestions.
