Going Green

The Recycling Club organized a recycle day on campus, challenging students to decrease the amount of trash generated during their lunch periods. Overall, students reduced trash from an average of 35 bags produced during all four lunch periods to only five bags. The winners were the freshmen class. Although they are the largest class at Xaverian, they produced the least amount of trash at only half of a bag! For more information visit the Xaverian Student Life News page.
