Sustainability at Hendrix

At the Physical Plant

  • Electric Cars: Hendrix College placed its first electric cars into service on campus in November – vehicles that are an environmentally-friendly alternative to gas powered vehicles utilized for maintenance purposes throughout the campus. The college plans to eventually replace other gas-powered vehicles on campus with these silent, non-emission vehicles. The cars are Global Electric Motorcars, a Chrysler company that has been in operation for 10 years. The company calls its vehicles "a versatile and efficient way to get the job done, as well as a clean way to do everyday work.” The vehicles are characterized as “zero-emissions personal transportation that is well integrated with traditional alternative transportation choices such as mass transit and carpooling."
