Partner helps Bauer go green

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a corporate partner of Bauer College of Business, will be hosting Make Recycling Count, an environmental awareness event, today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the AIM Center and in the lobby of Melcher Hall.

The event will focus on the importance of student service, along with individual and corporate responsibilities. The UH Campus Sustainability Task Force (CSTF) will be meeting with PwC to compare notes on ways to improve the University’s environmental efforts.

‘PwC has started an initiative on college campuses to introduce recycling and our task force is doing a lot of linking up with other colleges during RecycleMania in our aim to start grassroots recycling campaigns,’ junior English student and CSTF board member Mary Martin said.

‘The University of Houston is taking great strides in making the campus a greener place for its students, faculty and staff,’ Jessica Robertson, communications manager for the Bauer College of Business, said.

At the event, students will be able to trade plastic water bottles for aluminum bottles and take part in activities meant to teach them about energy consumption.

Robertson said that ideally those who attend the event will not only learn, but follow up with action.

‘(Make Recycling Count) will give everyone in Melcher Hall the opportunity to learn more about recycling and energy consumption and to put that knowledge into practice by registering to take part in a New Orleans service project in June,’ Robertson said.

PwC will be holding similar events such as this one at 100 U.S. schools, with one student per campus chosen from an open drawing to join and represent their school at the New Orleans service project in June.
