USF Net Impact makes green improvments to Malloy Hall

February 18, 2010 at 11:50 AM Leave a comment

Yesterday, the “Campus Greening Initiative” spearheaded by the USF Net Impact graduate program came to fruition. The goal of the initiative, launched back in the fall semester, was to install new water fountain applications which would enable students to fill reusable water-bottles, cutting down on the some 3,000 bottles thrown away on the USF campus everyday.  Approved by Dean Mike Duffy in the fall, Malloy Hall has officially become the pilot site for this environmentally friendly project. Co-chaired by MBA students Arash Bayatmakou and Sabeen Ahmad, Net Impact is planning to hand out USF custom reusable water-bottles to incoming students in the fall to encourage the success of the program and promote and expand organization’s ideas.

The movement is one of several initiatives that USF Net Impact, an organization dedicated to the merging of social and environmental responsibility with business, is tackling. The group is also currently working on implementing a composting program and a recycling education/awareness campaign in Malloy as well.
