SUSTAINABILITY COMES TO FIT’S LIBRARY

Visitors to the Gladys Marcus Library this fall will see a new patch of greenery where file cabinets once stood:

The Sustainability Council's new exhibition wall in FIT's library.

The inaugural displays are twofold. First, a selection of photos from one of FIT’s green roofs by a student in Photography professor Keith Ellenbogen’s class. Hue loves the close-up of the Sedum plant — it’s simply succulent!

The right half of the wall is home to something near and dear to Hue’s heart: the sustainability poster, “Where Does FIT’s Trash Go?” that ran in the Spring 2014 issue of Hue, plus seven posters that will be placed around campus in September, just in time for the college’s first No Impact Week.

Sustainability-2563

Sustainability posters supported by President Joyce F. Brown and the Sustainability Council.

These posters will guide our community not only in how to dispose of different kinds of waste but also what happens to it after we throw these things away. Hue fervently hopes the information encourages more thought, both about what we throw away and where we toss it.
