Give and Go Green

Dear Eco Friends:  It's that time of year again...  Give & Go Green!

For those of you who may not be familiar with this event, Give & Go Green provides Barnard students with an opportunity to donate items that you don't need any more, don't have room to pack, or you would rather not be wasteful and donate to an organization/person who can use it!

As EcoReps, we coordinate Give & Go Green and work in collaboration with Facilities and Residential Life to provide you multiple drop off locations throughout campus.

Starting this week, we will be collecting clothes, appliances, non-perishable food, electronics, partially used toiletries, and other items of the same sort.  All items must be clean, washed, and in good condition as we are donating these to other people.

There will be collection stations in the following locations:

  • Sulzberger Lobby (until May 12th)
  • 600 W.  116th St.  Lobby (for small items only - larger items go to 616)
  • 616 W.  116th St.  Lounge 
  • Elliott 3rd Floor Lounge
  • Cathedral Gardens 10th Floor Lounge
  • 110th Street, Area Off Of Lobby
  • Plimpton TV Lounge

Each of these locations will have areas sectioned off for each type of donation.  Please help us to keep everything as organized and as clean as possible and drop off your items in an organized fashion.  

You are also welcome to look through what is at the donation stations and pick up anything you would like as long as you leave the area clean.  This will be happening until May 17th, so please stop by and donate or browse!

All remaining items will be donated to Rock and Wrap it Up, Salvation Army, and Goodwill.  In the past, we have donated truck loads of items and we look forward to doing so again!!

Cheers!  The Barnard EcoReps (
