Trash sorting on campus.

ECNU set its goal to create a “green” campus through joint effort of the students, teachers, and faculty members.  

A team of volunteers, comprising both Chinese and foreign students, were also gathered at ECNU to carry out its implementation. Furthermore, teachers and students received proper training in order to carry it out during the transtion period. 

Dhritiraj Sengupta, an undergraduate at ECNU of India, gave his approval for garbage sorting on the campus. According to him, garbage sorting is not only environmentally-friendly, but also makes recycling more convenient and operable for everyone within the campus setting.
