Join the Green Committee, Staff for Sustainability

The Green Committee membership includes MIT support and administrative staff, representatives from the Office of Sustainability, Environmental Health and Saftey Office, Department of Facilities including the Recycling and Materials Management Office.

All members are volunteers. The committee meets monthly to organize events, outreach, and education in order to support the mission of the committee. All MIT community members are welcome to join. The Green Committee meets on the second Tuesday of the month, from 12-1 PM in the Recycling Program Office, Room 4-038.

Green members may split up into smaller subcommittees to work in depth on specific projects such as event planning, website design and development, and Ambassadors outreach. These subcommittees meet as needed. We have a member of the Green Committee on the Materials Management Working Group of the Office of Sustainability.

Green itself is a subcommittee of the Working Group on Support Staff Issues. Green members in good standing who are MIT support and administrative staff are eligible for membership in the Working Group on Support Staff Issues, a Presidentially appointed committee. There are many benefits to membership.
