What's Already Happened at Bennington
Understanding our Carbon Budget
- Under the supervision of Shane Chase, we developed a basic analysis of Bennington College's carbon foot-print during the 2009-2010 academic year
- In fall 2010, we implemented a detailed analysis of the carbon foot-print related to use of personal vehicles by students, faculty, and staff. This will contribute to our overall thrust towards carbon-neutrality, and takes a large step beyond 'standard procedures', which typically do not include this piece of carbon foot-print.
- Bennington has been recycling paper since the 1970s; for many years paper was trucked to a local recycled paper mill
- Beginning in 2009-2011, we've implemented a full, single-stream recycling program, working closely with a company that has developed recycling programs at a number of other regional institutions.
