When shopping, bring your own shopping bag.  Refuse additional plastic bags from stores.

Avoid buying disposables such as flashlights, cameras and pens.

Use gift bags they are always reused!








Office of Environmental Sustainability
Reduce Reuse Recycle

Sustainability means both to improve the quality of life today and to pass on a world that is as good as, if not better than, we found it for our children. Sustainability is comprised of social equity (people), economic health (prosperity), and environmental stewardship (planet).  In order for a community to thrive today and tomorrow, all three of these pillars must be supported and maximized by the community.
