Purchasing Sustainably at the UA

In 2012, the UA made a decision to support sustainability by officially encouraging departments to buy “greener” goods and services. Through a series of staff trainings, student gatherings and residence hall meetings, the Office of Sustainability and Residence Life are spreading the word about this initiative, while educating their own staff on simple ways to buy less, use less and buy green. In collaboration with Office Depot, the standard UA order form for office supplies is even undergoing a revision to highlight greener options.
