Help RCC Go Green

Green Fee

Suggested donation: $1-5

Ideas for how it could be spent:

  • Bike lockers like RVTD has to prevent theft since there are no security cameras on the bike racks at RVC
  • Moveable planter boxes at RVC
  • Pay for carbon offsets
  • Demonstration native plants added to RWC arboretum with walking guides
  • Fund a Sustainability Coordinator
  • Motion sensors to replace regular light switches
  • Transition to drought tolerant landscaping to save water
  • Additional water bottle refilling stations
  • Green roofs for increased energy efficiency
  • Permanent (long-term) signs around campus with info on why conservation is important. For example, where our waste goes, encouraging people to use paper towels wisely, etc.
  • Community garden
  • Composting classes/workshops
  • Having an Earth Day event at RVC
  • Vertical demonstration garden
  • Replacing paper towels with hand dryers
  • Paying for prime parking spaces for those who carpool
  • Allowing farmers on campus to sell produce and subsidizing the cost for low income students
  • Reimbursing all the cost of bus passes to students instead of $15/term
  • Additional solar panels
  • Putting a sink in for students to access to wash their own dishes, which would reduce the incentive to buy food and create waste from packaging
