Student group EnAct put together this
creative display in 1999 to mark the 10th
anniversary of the largest oil spill in U.S.
history, just one of the group's efforts to
further environmental causes. During its
30-year history, EnAct has educated
thousands of' students on "green" issues
and protested dozens of companies with
poor environmental records.
The members frequently lug signs and
mailing materials out to the Diag in a red
Radio Fiyer wagon. Once there, they talk
to students about the issues and ask them
to sign postcards addressed to political
or corporate officials. These mailings
range from plastic bottles addressed to
Coca-Cola asking the company to keep
its recycling promises to postcards read-
ing "Save the Ferrets."
In addition to the group's staple activ-
ities - service days, mass mailings and

EnAct. Chris Barbeau, ITD's manager
for marking engine technologies, said 16
million pages are printed every year at
campus computing sites.
The paper currently used at these sites
contains dioxins, byproducts of the chlo-
rine bleaching process that makes the
paper white. A few teaspoons of these
dioxins could contaminate all of the
Great Lakes, said EnAct facilitator
Steven Krieger, a junior in the Business
After a three-year search, EnAct
members discovered Rolland New Life
DP 100, an alternate paper that uses
hydrogen peroxide instead of chlorine.
This brand also has other advantages
over the one used in campus computer
It is "100 percent post-consumer con-
tent, so every ounce of the paper has
already been recvcled," Krieger said.
EnAct members will meet with ITD
and the University's office supplies
buyer in the next two weeks to mount the
final hurdle of the campaign. The
University needs to ensure that the chlo-
rine-free paper will not generate a large
cost increase before ITD will agree to
switch. The paper currently used already
costs 5.08 cents per piece, while students
are charged just 5 cents. The new paper
would add a quarter cent per page to that
Once ITD has negotiated a discount
for the volume of paper they plan to pur-
chase from the manufacturer, ITD will
run a pilot test in January to see whether
the recycled paper is cost effective. This
will involve putting the current and pro-
posed paper brands in new printers at

"We would obviously like to be at the
forefront of the movement if we can do
so in a way that is cost efficient and

Krieger and his fellow facilitators

potentially leading to a campus-wide
change to the environmentally-conscious
brand of paper.

departments will follow suit," Krieger
