Welcome to the homepage of Earth,
Carnegie Mellon University's Student Environmental Club
What We Are About:
We are working towards a better education of ourselves and others
on environmental issues. We are working to improve the
environmental impact we have as individuals, as a university, as a

In order to have more control over our funding, including additional funds for food, special occasions, etc., as well as selling useful
environmentally-friendly items to the student body, we are selling recycled notebooks and pint and quart sized Nalgene
brand water bottles with the Green Practices logo for $8.00 and $10.00. In the future, we may sell other items such as tupperware to use
at the Frew St. carts instead of styrofoam, reusable utensils, etc.
- Rush to Recycle
For this statewide competition, EARTH members and Green Practices Recycling Interns worked with Barb Kivz to cooridnate a publicity campaign, and in the end, the university placed second. Members of the Green Practices Committee and EARTH, along with students, attended the ceremony where President Cohen was presented with the award in February.
If this sounds cool, come join us. We are always happy to have more
people participating, planning, and brainstorming.
We can add your name to the email distribution list or answer specific
club or environmental questions.
