FALL CAMPUS CLEAN_UP

  • Did this with the ECC and SGA

TREE PLANTING 

  • In conjunction the Student Science Association we took part in the Tennessee Tree Project givaway and donated / planted indiginous tree-seedlings to the Dominican Sisters at Aquinis at St. Thomas Hospitol and the following 5 local elementary / middle schools in hopes that this would inspire students to be reminded of caring for the environment:
  1. West End Middle
  2. JT Moore Middle
  3. Westmeade Elementary
  4. Charlotte Park Elementary
  5. Kirkpatrick Elementary

ENVIRONMENTAL WEBPAGE

  • Due to the efforts of Sally Robertson, our “Biking Librarian” ;-),  we established wonderful Environmental Librarian’s Blog page which posts updated events, happening, and links. It can be accessed at:

 RECYCLING at NSCC

  • We re-established aluminum can recycling on campus – helping generate money that will be used toward the campus! 
  • We proposed a plastic reclying pilot program on our campus – and just got word that it was APPROVED!!

SPRING FLING

  •  In conjunction with Environmental Concerns Committee, we gave away trees (for a suggested donation of $1.00) to all the students, faculty and staff during Spring Fling.

 CULINARY  BREAKFAST FOR BICYCLE COMMUTERS AND WALKERS TO CAMPUS

  • As an incentive to encourage students to consider biking  or walking instead of driving to school, we hosted a “Biking/Walking Breakfast”, serving homemade yogurt, granola and fresh fruit made by the Escoffier Society.  Ross donated coffee and juice for bikers and walkers. 

LOGO

  •  We involved students from Pricilla Nash’s graphic arts practicum class to design a logo for Green Sleeves.  Then we voted and chose Sarah Knox’s to be our official Green Sleeves logo!
  • For our last meeting in the Spring we had a pizza/silk-screening party to print Sarah’s logo on t-shirts. 
  • We also printed bookmarks with the new official logo.

FUNDRAISER

  • We had 2 successful jewelry fundraisers. One in Feb (2 day event) and one April 15 (1 day, Spring Fling).  Earning us $40.00 for each day.
