Sustainable Moves at VALLEY

Sustainable Moves Committee | Phi Theta Kappa and the "Green Revolution"

The "Green Revolution", organized by the college's Phi Theta Kappa chapter, has a goal of helping families to educate children about recycling, expanding the planet's sources of energy, and not only conserving resources, but replenishing them. By collaborating with community and national organizations for the promotion of green alternatives, KVCC hopes to enhance community awareness of recycling and renewable resources.

Why the Green Revolution? By taking the time to recycle paper, plastic, metal and glass products, the amount of trash, debris and garbage bound for the landfill can be drastically reduced. Recycling 1 ton of plastic saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space.

Need more convincing? It is estimated that it takes a plastic container 50,000 years to decompose. Think about that the next time you toss away that empty water bottle that cost you at least a dollar
