Sign Up for Green Clean Up 2018

Calling all Miami University students and Oxford community members:

Miami University’s Chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary is pairing with EcoReps to host their annual Green Clean from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, March 16th.

It is a community service opportunity where the chapter’s member and others interested in volunteering through areas surrounding campus and uptown Oxford that need to be cleaned after Green Beer Day. The litter that is produced on Green Beer Day can be harmful to the environment because of the sheer amount of litter. Additionally, if the litter is not cleaned up soon after it is produced, it has a greater chance of blowing into storm drains and ending up in nearby waterways.

The Green Clean is a great way to clean up the trash before it has the ability to harm our environment. The event had a great turnout last year, and the City of Oxford really appreciates the efforts. As of right now, Dr. Crawford might even plan to attend the event!

People can get involved by contacting Caity Bell, or filling out this google form. The volunteers will start by meeting in Armstrong outside of Emporium in order to get gloves, bags, and block assignments. We hope you can participate in this great event and help make Oxford a more environmentally-friendly town.


GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
