Cleaning Products

RAD Services and Facilities use green products when we clean because they are economic, effective, and non-toxic. We encourage students to do the same. Two ways you can do this are in selecting environmentally-friendly cleaning products and collaboratively purchasing them with those around you to reduce consumption and waste. You can also make your own cleaning products in small batches from common household items. Some simple recipes are listed below.

Resources for determining which cleaners are really 'green'

Commercial Composting

A campus waste audit conducted by students estimated that half of Evergreen's landfill waste is compostable.

Free Store

Everyone in the Evergreen community is familiar with the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) but “reuse” is frequently the one least utilized. The Free Store is helping to change that.  Operated by volunteers from the Sustainability House and other students, the Free Store is located in the Housing Community Center. Items often donated and available for free include clothing, books, CDs, kitchen utensils, and shoes, but include much more!

Featured Sustainability Initiative: Sustainability Community

Living a Greener Life

Minimizing our impact on the environment and addressing social and economic injustices is a big part of our sustainability initiatives in RAD Services. The links below provide more information and resources for students and community members interested in learning how RAD is becoming less unsustainable.

Training Opportunities for Students

Training opportunities provided through the Student Employment Office will help you to be a more knowledgeable and effective employee in your current job and are also designed to help you in future jobs at Evergreen or other places.

Students who attend a session will receive a certificate of attendance. You may wish to keep these in your portfolio, or your supervisor may wish to see them. Some supervisors are able to pay you for the hours you spend in these trainings; others are not. Be sure to check with your supervisor about this.
