RHA Eco-Reps are student residents who have a passion for helping OSU Housing and Residential Life become more sustainable. Eco-Reps volunteer their time to be student leaders of sustainability in their Res Halls. They promote sustainable practices, raise awareness about sustainability issues, and encourage adopting environmentally conscientious behaviors among their fellow residents. Eco-Reps are managed by the RHA VP for Sustainability.
In 2017, the Eco-Reps utilized GSI (Green Student Initiative) award funding to buy 600 small, personal recycling bins for student residents to check out through roompact.com for use in their dorms. In 2018, the roompact.com loan program was phased out, and several halls were selected for pilot programs: Bost, Iba, Village B & West Commons. In 2019, Eco-Reps distributed Freshmen Kits, conducted programming in residences and participated in Homecoming Harvest Carnival, Recycle Sorting Facility Tours, and America Recycles Day. RHA Eco-Reps have applied for a 2020 GSI to fund recycling totes for more residents.
