Welcome to the Guide to Living and Working Green at Tufts!

Your Guide for putting sustainability into action.

Written for students and employees on all campuses, the goal of this Guide is to provide you with helpful tips and information about ways you can join Tufts’ community efforts to conserve resources, reduce our ecological footprint, and foster a sustainable university community.

Environmental stewardship and active citizenship are strong Tufts traditions, from a leadership commitment to reduce greenhouse gases to extensive recycling, organic food choices, and LEED-Certified spaces. With your help, we can continue to work towards making Tufts a leader in campus sustainability.

Thank you for taking time to read this Guide. Please use our recommendations as a starting point for taking steps to integrate sustainable behaviors into your daily life. We appreciate your participation and welcome your ideas and feedback!
