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. More information on campus waste reduction initiatives.
The Energy Program within Facilities Services is aimed to conserve resources, maximize energy efficiency, and engage with the campus community on ways that students, staff, and faculty can reduce their energy consumption. Learn ways you can reduce your energy consumption.
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. Learn more about eating green.
Whether you walk, run, bike, bus, or drive to campus, this initiative highlights all the sustainable commute methods supported by the university. More information on green commuting.
