BGI was originally founded in 2006 as the Green Roof Initiative, but has since expanded to a number of committees. What committees are active depends on interest from our organization’s members–if you are interested in restarting an inactive committee or creating an entirely new committee, talk to someone on the Board!
- The Recycling Committee focuses on increasing education of the importance reducing, reusing, recycling. We also work to increase recycling usage on campus and in our surrounding communities through education and when possible the assisting in the addition of recycling bins to areas with need. This group was responsible for the implementation and management of the first ever recycling effort that took place within Ross-Ade Stadium in 2008.
- The Stormwater Management Committee works on projects related to the sustainable management of stormwater in our community. They look at alternative methods of handling run-off water that results in the reduction of surface pollutants allowed into our rivers and streams.
