Transcript Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Residents edueate themselves on preserving the planet 88 If we talk to anyone from our parents' generation about the importance of the three R's, they'll reminisce about school days when the benefits of Reading, 'Riting, and 'Rithmetic were drilled into their minds. Because of the continued abuse inflicted upon our planet, reducing, reusing, and recycling have become the three R's of our generation. RA's and residents alike were extremely concerned about the environment and our continual misuse of our natural surroundings. Teri Jefferson, an RA in Law Hall was determined to educate residents on the precarious condition of the planet and the responsibility we must each take to insure Earth a future. Jefferson held a program that addressed what residents could do to help protect and preserve the environment. Those who attended were first treated to a Dr. Seuss film about "The Lorax", an animated figure who "wishes to speak for the trees that have no tongue." She advised students to "take some advice from the Lorax: if we don't speak for the trees, no one will." After seeing the film, sophomore Shanna Residence Halls Walker felt disturbed: "The Onceler (the villain of the film) was too much like big corporations today," she said, "they produced so much waste and recycled so little of it." Quad Assistant Area Coordinator, Bryan Burns spoke about the residence halls' fledgling recycling program. Burns urged residents to recycle correctly; bins were located in each Quadrangle, the Towers and Cougar Place. Only aluminum cans, white paper, and newspapers could be recycled. Burns also emphasized individual effort, for example, buying recycled paper and reducing unnecessary use of utilities. Despite the zealous efforts of individuals like Jefferson and Burns, the school was still experiencing a financial loss by participating in the recycling program on such a small level. But, in the words of Burns, "We're looking towards the future." One might wonder, since the university was suffering a loss and the program only reached a fraction of the student body, was it truly worth it? "Well," sighed Alicia Russo, freshman, "we had to start somewhere." -LaGuana K.
