The Student Sustainability Council is an ad-hoc council of USG with the purpose of promoting and developing a more sustainable mode of life for students and faculty on CWRU's campus. We aim to create and implement innovative projects dealing with recycling, water conservation, "green" building policies, food waste reduction, and many other topics including educating the student body on environmental issues. We work with faculty, staff, administration, and other student organizations to review, design, and implement new policies, practices, and procedures in order to accomplish a more sustainable lifestyle. We organize several outreach events to promote sustainable habits and bring about awareness to environmental issues, and organize/advertise environmental community service events in order for the campus community to be involved in helping the planet. We also aim to organize several outdoor recreation events to bring students to explore and appreciate the outdoors of the Greater Cleveland area.
