The Residence Life Green Team at NJIT joined forces with Project Porchlight last month to educate NJIT students on the energy savings offered by compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Sixteen volunteers helped Project Porchlight distribute a total of 314 CFL bulbs throughout Redwood and Cypress Halls. The CFL bulb distribution was part of Project Porchlight New Jersey's campaign to distribute energy-efficient light bulbs to residents across the state. “The distribution was a really great experience for the Green Team volunteers,” said NJIT residence coordinator Mark Bullock. “A lot of people talk about helping the environment, but the Green Team actually got a chance to do something about it.”  >>

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.   >>
