What is sustainability?

Depending on who you ask, sustainability has a lot of different definitions—but a common thread through the different definitions is the idea that our actions must preserve and not destroy the natural resources we draw upon to meet our needs. Sustainability seeks to ensure that future generations will be able to continue to use those resources—the water, energy, food and natural materials we depend upon.

Why should you care about sustainability?  

Sustainability is good for your health, good for the environment and can save money in a variety of ways. Here are just a few examples: walking or biking instead of driving is good exercise, and reducing energy-use lessens pollution and improves the quality of air that we breathe, and it saves you money through lower utilities bills. Also, using resources intelligently and preserving our beautiful campus for future students to enjoy is the right and fair thing to do.
