Everyone on campus can lend a hand to increasing the sustainability of WPI, through a variety of methods. Many of them are simple- shutting the faucet off while brushing your teeth, unplugging electronics when not in use, using refillable water bottles, or posting resources such as syllabi on Canvas rather than printing digital copies. In depth guides for how to live sustainably on campus created by the Office of Sustainability and Green Team can be found in the links below.
As we return to campus in the Fall, COVID-19 regulations may make sustainability more difficult on campus, especially in terms of single-use plastic. However, many of the personal methods of acting sustainably, such as shutting off the faucet, are still applicable, and single-use plastic cutlery can be washed and reused in your room.
Individuals may also join one of WPI's many sustainability-related clubs and organizations, which are listed below.
