Did you know?

  • Brockport’s grounds crew uses integrated pest management instead of pesticides.
  • All the new furniture in Smith Hall is made from recyclable materials and is LEED certified.
  • The college is investigating using post-consumer composting in the dining halls.
  • BASC uses produce from 10 local farms.

All these facts and more were shared with students during “Chalk the Walk” which was part of the first annual Sustainability week October 21-28, 2012.

Students from many majors kicked off the week with Campus Clean-Up, picking up trash around the campus and along the canal after enjoying a free lunch from TRAX. During Chalk the Walk students wrote sustainability facts in chalk on the side walk outside of the Union. Also during the week there was a Brown Bag Lecture about aquaculture, two documentary screenings, and a Sustainability Fair in the Union.

The College has already implemented many sustainable practices. Now it’s up to each of us to do our part!
