Greening the Ivory Tower: Improving the Environmental Track Record of Universities, Colleges, and Other Institutions.
If you're curious about how much of an environmental impact your college makes, read this book. Sarah Hammond Creighton clearly outlines the burden placed on natural resources by universities and colleges. But she doesn't leave it there; there are plenty of recommendations of what you can do to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Greening the Ivory Tower will guide you step-by-step through actions you can take to decrease an institution's environmental impact. In her own words, Creighton's book is about "the numerous small and humble actions that the members of a university community can undertake to reduce the environmental footprint." Check it out.
