EcoReps is continuing its Green Greek Representatives blog segment with Dylan Reynolds from the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity, who discussed the new waste fines:
With the beginning of the Green Greek Representative Program, the EcoReps have asked the representatives to make a statement about what sustainability means to them and their efforts to increase sustainability in their chapters. This week we’re showcasing the Alpha Chi Omega (AXO) sorority whose representative is Kalie Morrell.
This year, EcoReps is unveiling the Green Greek Representative Program, a brand new outreach program aimed at increasing sustainable operations in the Greek Community. The program is currently run by Kiyomi Morris and Tali Haller, who have been working nonstop for the past couple months to create it.
EcoReps has a large presence in the UW Greek Community, and we would like to highlight chapters that are making exceptional efforts to be more sustainable. This week we'll shine the spotlight on the Sigma Kappa sorority.
On May 19-21 EcoReps hosted the annual Green Greek Competition, a contest aimed at educating the Greek Community about sustainability and helping chapters go green. The EcoReps group set up tables on the median of 17th Avenue with activities designed to promote sustainable behaviors within the community. During the three days Greek members could participate in games such as a minute-to-win-it waste sorting challenge, trivia, and recycling basketball.
