Plymouth State University usually keeps their eyes towards the future. Students come to the eco-house to shape their future, mold themselves into a product their families, their peers, and potentially the planet would be proud of. This is all fine and dandy, but what about the future? Will there be one for humans and animals alike? PSU believes that if we cut down on our waste, emissions, and dependence on fossil fuels, we can have a hand in seeing to humanity’s safety in the future. Maybe it could be a possibility with the help of the small, eco-friendly residence hall right at the front-and-center of campus.

The Eco-House is a modest building perched atop the traffic circle near the bridge leading to Holderness. Its legacy has been building for quite some time, but it’s not so much the past this facility prides itself on. For every time a plastic water bottle ends up in the trash, you can rest assured a resident of the Eco-House is refilling one. For every stray can that winds up in the wrong receptacle, one is being recycled by the Eco-House and its residents. While the future may seem bleak, there’s always a little bit of hope to be found. It just takes a positive attitude, and a bit of resolve.

The Eco-House possesses solar panels, recycled hardwood floors, electrically efficient appliances, an outdoor garden, and many positive outlooks. The house and its residents also meet with the most environmentally progressive organizations on campus and two daring professors who have made the climate fight personal. Overall, there’s the spirit that celebrates fairness as well as compassion.

Stop in the Eco-House to talk to Brian Eisenhower or Steve Whitman if you’d like to further the resistance against environmental destruction. In the meantime, continue to treat mother Earth as she treated us when we were all brought upon this planet we call home.
