The Sustainable Living Committee seeks to cultivate and support a culture of sustainability at work, at home and in the community by coordinating educational programs, tours, initiatives and events. Through shared experiences that focus on building knowledge, skills and experience, the committee works to empower staff, faculty and students to integrate sustainability into their everyday mindset and behaviors. The committee is open to anyone with a personal and/or professional interest in sustainability, and there’s something for everyone—whether a seasoned environmentalist or someone new to being green. We meet monthly and strive to coordinate 2 to 3 signature events/projects each year.
The PSS Sustainable Living Committee is recognizing members of the UB community who display excellent examples of going green through our Caught Green Handed initiative. Going green can be as simple as taking alternate transportation to work, to making your own clothing from recycled materials. Everyone can do something to make their carbon footprint smaller, and we’d like to recognize those who have been extra creative with their approach to life and work.
Please use the form below to nominate yourself or someone you know and tell us how they are going green and why you think they should win. The winner will be featured in the next PSS Newsletter and will receive a gift from the Sustainable Living Committee to show our appreciation for your extra efforts!
