It is important to buy products made from recycled or recyclable materials in order to strengthen the market for recyclables and “green” products. Many companies, such as Office Depot and Home Depot now have “green” catalogs containing numerous items made from recyclables or renewable resources.
There are several on-campus organizations dedicated to promoting Recycling, “green” practices and Sustainability. Please visit http://www.fit.edu/activities/organizations.php for a listing of Student Organizations, or:
Incorporating waste reduction practices into recycling efforts presents an opportunity for a large pay-off in reducing the waste before it is produced.
By establishing a recycling program on campus, we hope to provide the students, faculty and staff with the opportunity to turn your concern for the environment into positive action. Those who have previously been unaware of the need to recycle will receive a practical education on the importance of conserving natural resources, energy and valuable open space. Our recycling program can provide an avenue for everyone to make a difference.
