Western Washington University ‘environmentally responsible’

wwu Old MainBELLINGHAM – The Princeton Review has named Western Washington University an environmentally responsible “green” college. It was one of 322 schools in the United State and Canada to be recognized.

The recognition is based on commitments to sustainability in academic programs, campus infrastructure, activities and career preparation. On a scale from 60-99, Western scored a 91.

According to a news release, several of the highlights include a student-run campus recycling program which processes 3,800 lbs. of recyclable material daily. Western was also recognized for offsetting 100% of its electrical energy consumption with renewable energy credits.

“Western’s inclusion in the Princeton Review’s Guide to Green Colleges reflects the commitment of Western students, staff and faculty to creating a sustainable campus community.” said Steve Hollenhorst, dean of WWU Huxley College of the Environment and co-chair of Western’s Sustainability Committee. “All over campus, people are making changes, big and small, in how they operate, do business, study, and teach.”
