New employees are shown a welcome video which highlights the campus carbon neutrality initiative and other programs including recycling and composting. This aims to connect Middlebury’s leadership role in environmental education and daily activities on campus. In addition, the packet of information provided to new employees includes “Get to Work- Go Green” information on ways to reduce the carbon footprint associated with commuting to work (including free use of public transportation for Middlebury employees) & “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” which covers not only recycling on campus but other services such as the Reuse trailer, shredding confidential documents and reusing packing materials.
