A new recycling initiative by students in an environmental issues class at Avondale is turning trash into cash for charity.
Initiatives to improve electricity consumption and waste management, some of which students suggested, are not only saving Avondale money but also reducing its environmental impact.

Staff members and students collected 100 kilograms of rubbish and planted 140 trees in a practical demonstration of advocacy during Green Week at Avondale.
Avondale will begin monitoring its energy and water use to foster a culture of individual responsibility it hopes will decrease costs and increase sustainability.
A green higher education provider would model holistic spirituality to its staff and students and include an ecological dimension in its curriculum.
