Green Events Tonight!

There are a lot of really cool green events happening tonight, Wednesday February 18! 

Before the Green Movie night stop by Lenape at 8:00 to play a fun recycling game and learn all about reycling, you will have a chance to win a $15 gift card, a caught Green Handed Card, have some snacks and even win a Preserve Toothbrush (last weeks featured green product).

We will be having our very first Green Movie Night in Crispell at 9:00 pm to watch The Day After Tomorrow and learn some recycling facts and play a recycling game. Come for food, prizes and a extreme look into global climate change.

Green Product of the Week

Ever wonder what kind of chemicals are in your laundry detergent?

Actually there can be lots of gross toxins that you do not want on your skin. Method laundry detergent is really great because it is not made of petroleum distillates, or napthas, like most normal detergents are made of. Its good to avoid petroleum distillates because they have been linked to cancer, lung damage and mucous membrane damage. 


Also its biodegradable, so it does not contaminate and pollute the earth once its done washing your clothing. Just because the detergent washed your clothing does not mean its done washing, the chemicals are still cleanin

g, and if your waste water is not sent to a treatment plant then its goodbye nemo! 

Also its concentrated so energy is not wasted shipping and packing water. Its only $8. Clean clothing, no more poisoned Nemos, no petroleum distillates and you can recycle the bottle when its empty!


Also you can save more energy by using cold water

How Is My Hall Doing in RecycleMania?

Check this chart for weekly updates on your hall’s place in the RecycleMania competition. You can also find this chart in the SUB, STL lobby and Hasbrouck lobby. 


If you come to the RHSA meetings on Mondays nights you can be present when the weekly winning hall is presented with a raffle ticket and award. 

Bin Contamination


Did you know that one bag with 19 pounds of recyclables and 1 pound of trash = 20 pounds of trash 

Please do not put trash or anything covered with food into the recycling bins, you’ll make the entire bin trash!
