Name of the campaign:
Leave Green

A brief description of the campaign:

The Leave Green initiative originally started as a student capstone project and with the help of Residence Life and the campus Sustainability Office, has expanded to a campus wide move-out program. Initially implemented during the spring 2015 semester, this student led coalition led the way to improve recycling efforts from students moving out by diverting and donating usable materials that would otherwise end up in the county landfill. Collection sites were strategically located in each housing area along with flyers to raise awareness of the collection efforts.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

This first collection saved over 1,800 lbs. of usable materials and were donated to local charitable organizations. Expanding campus-wide during the spring 2019 semester and generating more awareness, the Leave Green initiative donated over three box truckloads of usable items weighing over 6,300 lbs. to local Melbourne charitable organizations.
