We're committed to educating students about sustainability and climate change and reducing the emissions from our operations.
The campus restaurants serve compostable to-go ware. Our onsite facility annually composts 178,000 pounds of food waste.
Conservation is our primary energy strategy. Solar panels supply electricity to two buildings.
Campus restaurants serve food from local farmers, vegan options, wild caught Washington salmon and Fair Trade coffee.
Our organically maintained landscape is also a backyard wildlife sanctuary. Green roofs and rain gardens manage rain water naturally.
60% of campus waste is reused, recycled, or composted.
We have commuter incentives for car/van pools, car sharing, transit, walking and biking. And one-third of our campus vehicles are electric.
Students, staff and faculty can grow their own food in two campus community gardens. Students grow food for needy families in the off-campus urban farm.
You won't find plastic bottled water sold on campus. You will find water-efficient technologies in our buildings and gardens.
