Delta is Making Efforts to Help Planet Earth
Delta College has a desire to play its part in protecting the environment by reducing waste, helping wildlife thrive, and becoming increasingly sustainable. Each year, Delta has made improvements to its campus to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
“We have energy saving lighting throughout the college, installed vestibules to keep heat from escaping, our carpet is carpet tiles. So, when we get a wearpath in the carpet we send the worn tile pieces to a company we work with, who then grinds them all up, and we have new recycled carpet,” says Linda Petee, the Sustainability and Risk Management Coordinator at Delta. “Also, The Living Wall we have is a natural ventilation system of plants in the F-wing.”
