The Tufts Eco-Reps are a group of residential students who help to raise awareness about ecological issues, encourage environmentally responsible behavior among their hall mates and peers, and plan related events and activities. Other duties will include group activities, collaborative projects, and opportunities to represent the Eco-Reps Program at various campus events.
Staff and faculty play an important role in campus culture. They are often the stalwarts of their offices and thus are in the perfect position to practice and spread environmentally friendly behaviors. Through an education- and action-focused curriculum, the Eco-Ambassador (EA) program provides participants 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.
The Green Office Certification program supports, promotes, and recognizes offices that are engaging in sustainable practices. Offices may achieve certification based on the score they receive on a checklist of green office criteria in the areas of Energy & Water Use; Waste & Recycling; Paper, Printing & Office Supplies; Food, Beverages & Dishware; Transportation; and Sustainability Planning & Leadership.
