Campus Sustainability Guide

We are proud to present the second edition of the Plymouth State University Campus Sustainability Guide to the campus community. The second edition of the Campus Sustainability Guide was created by students, faculty, and staff to provide answers to common sustainability questions people working and/or living on campus frequently ask, such as what plastics can be recycled on campus. The focus is on the Plymouth State University Campus and the Plymouth community, not just general advice, and we hope the document can make being more sustainable easier by providing practical, usable information. To access the guide, please use the following link:

Plymouth State University is proud of our leadership in environmental conservation and sustainability. Our academic programs, student groups, and building operation and maintenance practices reflect our commitment to the environment. We have a long road in front of us to reach our goal of carbon neutrality. Although I am confident that we will reach this goal, everyone needs to pitch in and be part of the solution. Please stop in at EcoHouse or contact us to see how you can contribute.
