Welcome to Green Thinking – the official blog from the Office of Facilities Management at SUNY New Paltz, largely led by undergraduate student Melissa Iachetta, Recycling Coordinator.

This blog will promote the recycling, sustainability and overall “green” efforts at SUNY New Paltz.

If you would like to become more involved with Green Thinking and recycling at New Paltz join Recycling Club! Meetings are every Wednesday in SUB 414 from 8-9pm.

Our purpose is to bring recycling and other environmentally sustainable practices into the public eye. We work to educate the New Paltz community about the importance of recycling and proper recycling rules through programs, events, demonstrations, collaborating with other organizations, media campaigns and meetings. By making recycling easy, accessible, rewarding and fun we can maximize New Paltz’s recycling rates while minimizing waste.
