Take Action

"Going green" sometimes seems like an all or nothing effort. If you can't change everything at once, then why bother?

We think there's a better approach. We're asking everyone in the University community to make a commitment—spend one year focusing on one change a month, with the goal of turning sustainable actions into sustainable habits. Use alternative transportation when you can. Take shorter showers. Be conscious of your food sources. Recycle and reuse. Turn the lights off. Learn how to keep it going when you leave Richmond. Celebrate your successes. These are all simple actions, but when we all make individual changes over time, it adds up.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Take it now!
