“When exploring our options for potential community engagement projects, we researched existing programs in parks and community centers. My father, who works for the Battery Park City Authority in Manhattan, runs a clothing recycling program for the City Authority, which operates exclusively in Battery Park City. We realized the need for a similar program in Geneseo, where often, on campus students feel the urge to send their excess clothes or textiles to the landfill in the crunch for time that results at the end of each semester. With this in mind, we decided to make the focus of the program be concerned with students living in residence halls. After researching organizations that might be able to suit our needs, we found Planet Aid, an organization based in Rochester.” – Cal
…we will have saved 1,200-1,600 pounds of CO2 emissions from entering the environment just from our operation here at Geneseo.
