5 ways to Green Your Campus community
Need a break from that demanding underwater basket weaving curriculum? Study up on ways to green your campus, from local food to climate control to reducing landfill waste, and beyond.
Lend a helping hand to your campus mates by directing their collegiate waste—books, bedding, blow dryers, beanbag chairs, you name it—away from landfills and toward charitable organizations.
Take a study break to request that the college brass sign this commitment to reduce carbon emissions on your campus.
Colleges and universities have enormous purchasing power. Supporting local farmers cuts down on greenhouse emissions caused by transportation, and boosts the local economy.
The climate is hot for change, and these days student activists will likely be met with enthusiasm and cooperation from school administrations.
Often, the first step in finding a thriving green campus community is attending a college that flexes its eco-muscle in the academics department.
