Booths were set up in the East Annex building where CVTC staff and students from program clubs explained the importance of using CFL light bulbs, to how the Residential Construction program builds green homes. There were also a number of presentations, talking about everything from interior plants, recycling and landfill use, geothermal heat pumps, to green core ability initiatives. It was all done to educate people on the importance of living a green lifestyle.
"So many of our programs are trying to teach the green aspect of the industry," comments Judy Anibas, committee chair of the CVTC Green Team. "It's a lot of fun to see everything we do in one place, and it just proves that CVTC is really trying to make a difference."
Other activities that took place during CVTC's Earth Day was the Dirty Sock Contest sponsored by the Automotive program and an interior plan and Norway Pine seeding sale offered by the Landscape, Plant & Turf Management - Horticulture program. ShredAway recycled confidential documents, Trish Erickson Appliance accepted large appliance for recycling, and Comprehensive Recycling took small appliances.
CVTC students also showed off the solar display, the CVTC Green House, wind turbine display, and biofuel processing.
