Sustainability at Puget Sound

Loggers Live Green is the symbol of the university’s commitment to not only acting sustainably but encouraging behavioral sustainability in all members of the campus community. It is a reminder that we all bear the responsibility for achieving the goals of the President’s Climate commitment to reduce and eventually seek to erase our carbon footprint on the earth’s atmosphere.

Sustainability Services oversees all efforts to cut waste on campus, from large-scale zero-waste events to managing the daily recycling produced by the university. Click here for further information on all campus waste reduction initiatives.
Sustainability Services also manages efforts to reduce energy consumption across campus, partnering with off-campus organizations to evaluate and increase our energy efficiency. Contact the Sustainability and Energy Manager with questions about campus energy use.
The major effort on campus to conserve water is the Why Bottled Water? campaign, which seeks to eliminate the sale of bottled water on campus. Led by ECO, it has dramatically reduced the sale of single use water bottles at The Diner.
This initiative, revamped in 2016, is designed to help the campus community get to know their food. It recognizes that everyone has a right to make their own food choices and exists as an information resource for anyone who wants to learn about the environmental, social, and health impacts of their dietary decisions.

Whether you walk, run, bike, bus, drive, or segway to campus, this initiative highlights all the sustainable commute methods supported by the university. Zip on over here for more information.
