I C Green Club
IC Green is a student organization that strives to educate and increase awareness about environmental issues in Iona's community and worldwide. We hope to make recycling on campus more efficient and user-friendly, and to encourage a reduction in energy consumption. Our outreach will be generated toward students but we will collaborate with faculty, facilities, and administration to carry out future major sustainability projects.
With a world becoming increasingly conscious of the growing eco-crisis, the students of Iona College have seen the need to step up and promote sustainability on our campus. Following the Environmental Consortium of Hudson Valley Colleges & Universities in the Fall of 2006, four students teamed up to found this student organization that would resurrect the mission of Project Earth and rename it I C Green.
