NEO faculty member starts eco-friendly program

One NEO A&M faculty member is working to make a difference on campus, starting a new eco-friendly program

Natural Resource Instructor Chase Fairweather recently launched a project to address the lack of recycling on campus. 
NEO’s President’s Partners gave him a donation to jump start it, inlcuding purchasing 64 14-gallon reclcying tubs to place throughout campus. 
Fairweather says often times, he and other faculty and students would waste a lot of paper.
 So he is hoping to counteract it with this movement.

” In the 70’s was the start of a Green Movement and I think it kind of lost it’s wayside. We’re in the year 2019 and we are always looking for a new advantage to recyle. I think our resources are underappreciated sometimes.” said Natural Resource Instructor Chase Fairweather 

Fairweather says since Miami is a rural town, he hopes it inspires other locals to join their initiative as well.
