Welcome to Tufts University! Sustainability is deeply engrained within the university’s culture, but you might be wondering how sustainability relates to your job here at Tufts. You may make decisions in your role about purchasing, travel, and events, and there are many opportunities to conserve, reuse, and recycle resources that you must use in your position.
This is a guide to get you thinking about how you can integrate sustainability into your day-to-day work.
In a little over an hour, you can get trained in sustainability and recycling as it pertains to Tufts. Earn your Employee Sustainability and Employee Recycling Certification badges to place in your email footer, and get a certification sticker to place in your office or on your water bottle.
The Eco-Ambassador program provides staff and faculty with the resources, skills, and knowledge necessary to effect change, serve as leaders, and promote sustainable behaviors both in their offices and in the larger Tufts community. See our list of current Eco-Ambassadors.
Employees can receive fresh, local produce each week in the summer and fall by purchasing farm from The New Entry Food Hub, an affiliate of the Tufts Friedman School of Agriculture & Nutrition that supports small-scale beginning farmers.
