Terrace Recycles

Originally posted by Paola Luna

Terrace is near campus residential community. Alpha Zeta Puerto Rico helped in the voluntary project "Terrace Recycles” that brings together temporary collage students as well as permanent residences with the objective of a better community lifestyle and environment, by creating awareness of the contamination of the natural resources, water and air pollution. In this activity we promoted this project inside the campus by the distribution of flyers, orientation and with a shirt sale that encourages students to recycle that raised money for future activities. This was a tremendous opportunity to create conscious about the environment by promoting how and where to recycle. Also members helped promote Terrace’s eco-friendly workshops and educational activities like the "Recycling of Televisions” and "How to Re-Use” workshop.
