EIG is composed of students who are interested in making the John Carroll community more sustainable in its practices.
What are some of our goals?
- To increase awareness of how students, faculty, staff, and administrators can Go Green.
- To improve the campus recycling program through more education, improved signage, and greater access to recycling bins throughout campus.
- To maintain a bike fleet on campus for use by the campus community.
- To continually identify ways to help make JCU a more sustainable community.
What are some of our accomplishments?
- Free bicycle rental through the Coburn Bike Co-op: Bikes can be checked out at the Rec Center with your campus ID.
- A new perennial garden by the student center: In collaboration with the Grounds Crew, EIG members created a perennial garden, which will decrease water use and mowing, provide wildlife habitat, and help beautify the campus. This garden was created without the use of herbicides.
