Get Involved


The University of Georgia is working to create a culture of sustainability on campus.
Try these Seven Simple Steps toward a more Sustainable UGA:

See the light!
• Raise the blinds- sunlight is free! If you must use lights, please remember to turn them off.

Conserve Water
• Every drop counts! Take shorter showers. Do full loads of laundry and dishes.

Waste Not
• Bring your own bags, bottles and mugs. Recycle what you can’t reuse.

Eat Well
• Grow your own herbs or veggies and buy food grown in your local area.

Compute Wisely
• Turn if off! Shut down computers when not in use. Print only when necessary and use both sides.

Commute Creatively
• Walk, bus, bike or carpool instead of driving solo. Reduce your miles by combining errands.

Think Before You Buy
• Do you need it? Where did it come from? Where will it go when you are done?
