The Office of Campus Sustainability has been operating within Campus Operations to fulfill the three main goals of the Sustainability Strategy:
April is Earth Month!
Since 1970, April 22nd has been celebrated as "Earth Day" across the country. However, there's so much going on with sustainability & the environment that it's impossible to fit it all into just one day! This April, get involved with one of the many Earth Month events happening across campus and the community!
BGSU's recycling program
BGSU offers single-stream recycling throughout all of campus. This means all recyclables go into the recycling bin and non-recyclables go into the landfill bin. Recyclables include paper, plastics #1-7, cardboard, metal, and glass! Follow the guidelines provided on the signage to help ensure items are placed into the correct bin.
BGSU Climate Action Plan
BGSU has completed the Climate Action Plan, which drives sustainability at the University. The CAP has outlined the current status of sustainability as well as areas for planned improvement. The University has accepted the goal of being Carbon Neutral by the year 2040!
