ECO – that Jewish environmental group

People have more in common than they often think. But we all have one thing we share: the world around us. We in ECO believe that it is our responsibility to be stewards of the environment, for our health and enjoyment, for the good of generations to come, and just because it's the responsible thing to do. It is worth remembering that the consequences we are facing now are the consequences of our human activity. And only we are responsible for environmental crises and disasters.

ECO has two main functions:

1. To make the Hillel building more sustainable and to make it a place where living sustainably is possible. So far, we've improved recycling at Hillel, converted Shabbat meals on Friday nights into using reusable dinnerware, offered vegan/vegetarian meal options, and invited Jewish environmentalists to speak.

2. To make Northwestern more sustainable and to make it a place where living sustainably is possible. So far, we've set up recycling centers on campus for ink cartridges, CFL's and batteries, started a Green Roof Task Force to initiate green roofs on campus buildings, lobbied for changing to reusable dinnerware in the dining halls, assisted in creating the first organic garden at Northwestern, started a comprehensive email newsletter with campus-wide "green" news, held several educational student-run firesides (lectures/informational sessions), and co-sponsored Green Cup (campus-wide competition to cut back on Northwestern's carbon footprint and water consumption in the dorms and fraternities/sororities).

We meet Sundays at 1 - students of all backgrounds welcome!
