How Universities are going Green– An Infographic

Here’s a super cool infographic that looks at how our institutions of higher education are leading the way in green building and sustainable initiatives. There are so many ways that large universities and collages can make positive changes that their student, faculty and staff can be proud of. Some of the examples of green initiative listed below are reducing bottled water consumption, using local produce, reducing paper use (saving money and resources!) and implementing solar and other alternative energy sources throughout campus. For more information (and to see if your campus made the cut!), check out Clean Technica’s list of the 332 greenest colleges and Sustainablog’s popular post about the top 12 Green Colleges and Universites.

Happy (green) learning!
