What you can do
There are many ways to get involved in sustainability at UCLA, and there are many things which individual staff, faculty, and students can do to lower their footprints on campus and at home.
Greening the office is a great way to improve your personal sustainability as well as engage and educate your colleagues. Implementing these practices can really save money as well as save natural resources. Take the lead and help your department get a Green Office Certification. The Staff and Faculty Sustainability Handbook has tons of great tips to get started.
Your daily choices can add up to a big impact. You can make a difference with how you travel, work, play, and how you buy, use, and dispose of products. With the quick tips and info found in this easy to use guide, you can begin to transition to a more sustainable lifestyle on campus (as well as off campus). You can also check out undergraduate student groups and graduate student groups.
