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, Eco-Boards in the halls, 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 organizing MHC’s War-of-the-Watts competition.

In collaboration with Facilities Management, the Eco-Reps help students live green at MHC by providing energy efficient LED light bulbs and recycling bins.

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