A school’s statewide impact
Cedar Falls, Iowa is home to the University of Northern Iowa. UNI is one of 24 schools that made the Princeton Review’s Green Honor Roll. Their effort to go green not only affects the university, but the state as a whole. UNI has a Center for Energy and Environmental Education, which helps state organizations with issues like local food systems and energy conservation.
At the school itself, there are green projects throughout the campus. UNI offers classes focused on sustainability, and even a capstone class that focuses on environment, society and technology. The McLeod Center has a green roof project, which helps reduce noise, conserve water and reduce runoff from storm water. At this moment, 13 different buildings on campus are working on a recycling program to reduce campus waste.
Going green at Blain’s of Cedar Falls, Iowa
Our tire shop in Cedar Falls, Iowa wants to put forth that same effort to go green. When you come in to buy new tires, your old tires are recycled. They’re sent off to Liberty Tire Recycling, where they’re reused for a variety of purposes. The old tires are turned into crumb rubber, used to make new composite crossties for railroad tracks. They’re also used to make rubber mulch, which is much safer than wood or stone, and doesn’t gather mold or fungus growth.
