UCR Sustainability Efforts Receive Mentions!

By Sustainability Interns | May 6, 2011

These past few weeks have been very exciting for the Office of Sustainability at UCR. To kick things off, Earth Week was about 2 weeks ago and the sustainability program received some spotlight in U.S News and World Report. More specifically, UCR received praise for our bottle to pen exchange as well as for our demonstration of the sun oven. In addition, UCR made it to the Princeton Reviews list of “Green Colleges”.

Pretty exciting? We still have more! UCR also received two awards in the Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Best Practice Awards Competition. The UCR Urban Garden Seminar received an award in the “Campus-Community Partnership” category and the new medical building received an award in the “Overall Sustainable Design” category.
