Who is RU Green?
RU Green works within Roosevelt and out in the community in very hands-on ways. Whether we are getting our hands dirty on the rooftop garden or picking up trash in areas of Chicago that could use the extra help, we are always making a difference. Our mission is:
To make the Earth a little greener, cleaner, and happier.
We hold informational meetings on how we can be more sustainable in our everyday lives, we go to protests to strike against climate change, visit farmers markets to support our local farmers, and do the occasional eco arts and crafts for members to take home. Whether that be a terrarium they made or a painted flower pot. We have also conducted donations for winter items to be distributed to the homeless, to not only keep the homeless warm for the winter but to also divert textiles from landfills.
Join us to get involved with a community that all have an interest in helping the planet, fighting for social justice, and having fun doing so.
