A Guide to Campus Sustainability Month

Higher education is all about preparing students for the next chapter of their lives.

Solving algebra problems paves the way to becoming a top engineer, and if a student wants to become a bestselling author, studying Fitzgerald at college is the best way to prepare.  One thing every student should learn is the importance of sustainability and ecological responsibility. That’s why Campus Sustainability Month is so important. We can’t wait to see the teach-ins, sustainability pledge drives, zero-energy concerts, green sporting events, and whatever else you have planned this October!


We’re also excited about sharing some of our favorite co-branded products that will engage students and promote sustainability. But remember: These are just a few of our favorite innovative ideas – if there’s anything else you’re interested in, just fill out the form and we can make it work!
