This is the inagural year of the Saint John's Eco Rep Program! An Eco-rep is a first year Johnnie who volunteers in his resident hall to promote awareness about environmental sustainability and stewardship. Saint John’s has a proud history of being an environmentally conscious and sustainable campus and as Eco Rep you will be able to continue this proud tradition.
It is no secret that our cooperative behaviors have many harmful impacts on the environment. However, we can collectively take action to reduce these impacts and change our world for the better. While the effort of one individual may seem futile, the collective effort of an entire residence hall full of students can make a huge difference. That is the philosophy behind Eco-reps, to encourage your fellow first year students to collectively participate in environmentally sustainable behaviors
