Review for EALgreen, Wheaton, IL, USA
As a proud Monmouth Scot, I am delighted to learn when my school is participating in a sustainable project. The partnership with EALgreen is definitely distinctive and may even be unique. The project that allows a college like Monmouth to buy the equipment and supplies needed for the physical plant and other department operations and generate scholarships for students with financial need is truly innovative. Small colleges offer so much to students--small class sizes, mentoring from full professors, residence life--and they need all the help they can get to balance the cost of the education with available financial aid to create access for a diverse group of students. Knowing that Monmouth can participate in the EALgreen network to obtain name brand products for serving students, faculty and staff while saving money that is re-purposed for scholarships is illuminating in a very positve way. That all of these pieces come together to help the planet is a great bonus.
