While we typically hear "air pollution" and think of the outdoors, indoor pollution is a growing health problem in the U.S. Some of the pollutants that affect health are Carbon Monoxide, formaldehyde, VOCs, and disinfectants. These chemicals can cause symptoms ranging from allergies, headaches, fatigue, to even nervous-system disorders and cancer. Keeping plants indoors can absorb those toxic gases and increase the quality of air!
2nd Annual "Green" College Rating
BGSU ranked as one of the top "green" colleges in 2013 & 2014 due to its commitment to sustainability. Our website will help you see why we received such a distinction. Learn More
new recycling program
In the Fall, BGSU will featured a brand new recycling program: single stream recycling. This means recyclables no longer need to be sorted out by the type; all recyclables go into the recycling bin and non-recyclables go into the landfill bin. Recyclables will now include the previously denied plastics #1-7, metal, and glass! This makes recycling easier and more convenient for all BGSU students, staff, faculty, and guests! New bins and signage will be deployed to inform the campus community! Learn more
