CORNELL ECOLOGY HOUSE
Eco Mission Statement
Eco House exists to further sustainability, animal welfare, plant cultivation and appreciation, ingenuity, environmental education, inclusivity, and community. We commit to having an enthusiastic atmosphere, educational programming, committees, and sustainable lifestyles. We will expand our impact through outreach, collaboration, and participation in the wider Cornell community as Eco representatives. In doing so, we will act as an environmental hub for campus.
Are you ready to live this mission statement during your time as an Ecohouser and beyond?!
Welcome to the Ecology House! This is a diverse community of aspiring engineers, veterinarians, doctors, architects, biologists, chemists, programmers, lawyers, researchers, and more. Despite the variety of backgrounds and majors, everyone is connected by one concern: the environment needs our help. The Ecology House teaches students how to begin to change the world, even in the smallest of ways. Everyone learns how to compost, recycle, and promote energy efficiency. In addition, students are given the chance to partake in a wide variety of leadership positions, ranging from being a committee leader to an Eco representative at campus-wide events. At Eco, you will always have the chance to express yourself and bring new ideas to the table (or kitchen). Eco House has a dynamic environment, improved daily by the thoughts and actions of every resident and staff member.
The Eco laundry room will have Cora Balls starting Fall 2019!
Every room in Eco will have a Terracycle box starting Fall 2019! You can save up your Terracycling waste then empty it at our recycling station every week (at the same time you empty your Eco-provided compost bin!)
Eco has an [unassembled] bike in a box...and a generator...guess which residence hall is getting a bike generator to charge your electronics?! Get some exercise, disconnect from screens, and recharge that phone/tablet/laptop while knocking out some textbook readings!
