Power of a Single Action
Sustainability is open territory — there is much to be accomplished and plenty of room for innovation. Pioneers are needed at all levels who can make important contributions and have a profound impact on our future. We invite you to become an active participant and to expand your awareness of sustainability on campus and throughout the communities in which you live, work, and play. After all, it’s the power of a single action that brings about change.
Recycle To Fundraise!

Although phone books are made with the lowest possible quality paper, they can still be reprocessed and made into new yellow pages, paper towels, toilet paper, animal bedding, household insulation, mulch, drywall, and roofing shingles. Record album covers were also manufactured from recycled phone books and newspapers! In the past, campus phone books have gone into the production of local household insulation and hydroseed mulch. A single ton of recycled directories saves 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space.
It’s your turn to make the call!
• Telephone directories are delivered to campus offices twice annually.
• Place your outdated directory in the green mixed paper collection containers.
