Operation Green is the Environment Club for RACC. The members dedicate themselves to educate the college community as well as the city of Reading on ways to change their lifestyle. The changes allow an individual to reduce their carbon footprint, which is the impact one person has on the environment.
Operation Green has already made a positive impact by hosting rain barrel workshops. Their success in selling the barrels to home owners in the greater Reading area brought a lot of attention from organizations such as the PA Department of Environmental Protection and the Schuylkill Action Network. The Schuylkill Action Network presented the Schuylkill Scholastic Drinking Water Award to Reading Area Community College and the members of Operation Green on May 7, 2015. The students of Operation Green impressed many people with this outstanding accomplishment.
