Reynolds celebrates Earth Day

JSRCC celebrated Earth Day with simultaneous pep rallies on each campus, featuring live remotes from 96.5 KLR - Richmond's classic rock station. The College is also kicking off its new recycling program and is encouraging faculty, staff and students to conserve resources on campus as well as at home. Giveaways included JSRCC organic cotton t-shirts, coffee mugs and seed packets in honor of Earth Week.

"Earth Week reminds us to appreciate our global home, to assess its health and how it is changing," said JSRCC Director of Marketing and Public Relations Malcolm Holmes. "One of the most visible ways to help this cause is to recycle."

Last year the College Sustainability Committee began meeting to explore ways the College could become a good global citizen for the environment; to provide information and training to faculty and staff, and to raise awareness of how the College and its employees might contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment.
