Greenhouse is a student environmentalist organization who desire to bring an environmental and sustainable consciousness to the campus community. Greenhouse is a campus leader, bringing innovative and bold initiatives that reduce resource consumption, produce substantial energy and cost savings, and change archaic attitudes towards environmentalism. By activating the assets of community members and advocating for effective and feasible changes that can happen today, Greenhouse is one of few student organizations that truly make a difference.
Past successes have been: coordinating and directing for many years immensely popular Earth Day Fest, raising the College of Wooster's rating in the Campus Sustainability Report Card, converting Lowry Cafeteria in to a Trayless Cafeteria, sponsoring Rideshare, and becoming the primary motivator for environmental initiatives on campus.
Current Projects and Campaigns: removing bottled water from campus, initializing a revolving-loan fund for environmental efficiency projects with the Office of Business and Finance and with Campus In Power, expanding and evangelizing recycling on campus with Waste Management and the Grounds Department, educating the student body on low-meat diets with Hospitality Services, and coordinating semi-regular clothing exchanges.
