ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (Jan. 28) — 75,000.
That’s the number of trees demolished to make one circulation of The New York Sunday Times.
That number seem high? It isn’t.
St. Bonaventure University’s Tread Lightly has brought much light lately to recycling. The club will also begin a campaign, Recyclemania, which will continue to promote recycling by students and faculty. It begins on Feb. 2.
“Recyclemania is essentially trying to make Bonaventure students aware that recycling is important and it does help our planet,” said Tristan King, a sophomore member of Tread Lightly. “During that whole period, we enforce recycling. In dorms we enforce students to recycle more and use the recycle bins in the garbage areas instead of just using the garbage cans.”
