IGreen Team ye-BCC ixhumanisa imizamo yokwehlisa i-Carbon footprint, igcine imikhuba eqhubekayo, ifune uxhaso lokwenza izinhlelo, futhi ixhumanise le mizamo namanye amakolishi

IKomidi Leqembu Eliluhlaza LeBerkshire Community College lihola imizamo yokusiza ikolishi libe nobungani bemvelo, lisimame futhi lihehe izakhamizi, izivakashi nezizukulwane ezizayo.

Olunye lwezinhlelo eziluhlaza e-BCC kube ukufakwa kwamapaneli asebenza ngelanga ukukhiqiza ugesi. IBerkshire Community College njengamanje inamapaneli welanga angama-1846 afakwe ngaphezu kwamabhilidi ayisikhombisa. Ukukhiqizwa kwamandla aphakathi kwalezi zinhlaka kulingana cishe namaphesenti angama-25-30 wokusetshenziswa kukagesi wasekampus.

Ngo-2017, i-BCC yamukelwa kuqala phakathi kwamakholeji namayunivesithi aseMassachusetts nase-4th esizweni ngezinga labo lokuphambukisa imfucuza! I-RecyleMania ingumncintiswano ezweni lonke wamazinga wokuphinda usebenzise kabusha nokunciphisa imfucuza cishe emakhampasi angama-200 asekolishi naseyunivesithi.

Ukwenza kabusha i-BCC kufaka amabhodlela engilazi nezimbiza, iziqukathi eziningi zepulasitiki, ithini ne-aluminium soda namathini okudla. Futhi, basanda kufaka imigqomo ekhangayo enezimpawu ezicacile ezibonisa ukuthi ukuvuselelwa kabusha, iphepha, umquba kanye nodoti kungahlelwa kalula kanjani.

Njalo entwasahlobo iqembu leGreen lixhasa ngosuku ubuhlakani, abasebenzi kanye nabafundi ukuba bahlangane benze ikhampasi ibukeke ingcono kakhulu. Abantu bavolontiya ihora noma amabili ukufaka amagilavu, bathathe ama-rakes futhi bachithe isikhathi esithile ngaphandle bezijabulisa.
