/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Centennial College students and community members are getting ready to set their sights on a greener future for the upcoming green event of the season: The Big Pitch Environmental Forum./

    TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Instead of just reading about what can be done
to save the world from environmental disaster students, administrators and
community members, along with industry representatives, will all join together
to go green.
    In an effort to learn what they can do onsite at the campus and in the
community students at the Progress Campus of Centennial College will attend
this one time original event. Faculty members and representatives from the
Environmental Students Society of Centennial College will band together to
learn about and implement achievable solutions to make the school and
community more environmentally friendly.
    How to compost partially eaten food that would otherwise end up in the
garbage and how to know where to recycle milk cartons will be among some of
the minor topics to be discussed at the event. Other items of interest include
which coffee cups can be recycled and which types of paper and cardboard can
be recycled.
    But most important will be the new and innovative ideas on how to make
the school run more efficiently while being more environmentally sound.
Presenters at the event will give direction on ideas for retrofits of lights
and electrical outlets to suggestions on how to make the school power supply
run on geothermal energy and solar panels.
    If you want to catch the environmental bug then be sure to be at The Big
Pitch Environmental Forum.
