The NJIT Campus Center Eco Giving Tree will help many homeless individuals to keep warm this winter. Members of the NJIT community are encouraged to donate hats, gloves and scarves that will be donated to homeless shelters in Newark. The tree died of natural causes and will be eventually composted. “Even a dead tree can have a purpose,” said Campus Center Director Donna Minnich Spuhler. “We did not have to cut down a living tree or buy an artificial tree.” Located in front of the Campus Center Bookstore, the tree features LCD lights that use 80% less energy and will outlast regular holiday lights, ornaments that have and will be re-used for many years, and recycled paper tags.   >>
NJIT placed 46 out of 210 college campuses who participated in the Recyclemania 2009 competition with 3.35 lbs. recycled per person (in 2008 NJIT recycled 1.67 lbs. per person). "Thanks to everyone who helped promote recycling and the many incentive activities we offered," said NJIT Campus Center Director Donna Minnich Spuhler. The winners of RecycleMania and the Energy Reduction contest will be announced today at NJIT's Earth Day Green Fest. >>
NJIT has joined more than 400 colleges and universities in RecycleMania 2009, a national recycling competition to determine who can reduce and recycle the most campus waste. Over a 10-week period ending March 28, NJIT will compete in various categories measuring the success of campus recycling and waste prevention efforts. "This is our second year competing, our first as the entire university," said Campus Center Director Donna Minnich Spuhler. We are working closely with Residence Life to promote recycling and are hoping to make it to the top 25 percent of schools participating." NJIT's progress can be checked on the RecycleMania website and on posters in the Campus Center.   >>
