“Some of our program’s many efforts to have a more sustainable footprint include; using donated rags rather than paper towels, having rinse buckets to reduce water consumption as well as using chemical filters on sinks to protect the local James River from outgoing water, and recycling brass, copper, pewter, and steel in shared scrap bins. VCU’s metals program also encourages its students to source their silver and diamonds from the local Hover and Strong refinery that sells both certified clean diamonds as well as sustainable refined silver.”
