Sustainability

Eastern Washington University offers a dynamic and expanding range of campus sustainability features including: a University Recycling Department, five years of participation in the RecycleMania national competition, a Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) program to reduce single-driver commuting, a Campus Sustainability Committee, participation in the Washington State Energy Service Performance Contracting (ESPC) program, and an Annual Student Research Symposium on sustainability practices. For students, the green-minded may participate in the Eastern Environmental Club, or major in a range of environmental disciplines including ecological studies, environmental chemistry, and urban & regional planning. EWU holds LEED Gold certification on Hargreaves Hall and the University Recreation Center and is anticipating certification on a number of new building and renovation projects. In total, the university diverts an impressive 35 percent of waste from landfills (100 percent of campus buildings have designated recycling areas), and the CTR program has achieved a 30 percent student and 33 percent faculty participation rate in carpool and vanpool guaranteed rides home, free bus passes, biking, telecommuting, and other transportation alternatives. The university’s “Sweater Days, Better Days” campaign promotes awareness of energy consumption and costs during the winter months. With enthusiastic participation from its students, EWU is growing greener all the time.
