UH makes Princeton Review's Green List 3 years in a row
Date:4/23/2012

Each year, UH continues to reduce its carbon footprint through enhanced sustainability initiatives and increased participation from the campus community. Such efforts have been crucial to the university's recent recognition in The Princeton Review's 2012 "Guide to 322 Green Colleges." UH has been recognized as a green university by The Princeton Review for three consecutive years.

"UH is thrilled to be recognized again by The Princeton Review as one of the nation's greenest colleges," said Emily Messa, associate vice president for administration. "This is a testament to the integration of sustainability into the fabric of our university. We recognize that sustainability is a continual journey and look forward to learning and growing with our community."

Messa is among the dedicated staff members and students overseeing Green UH, the initiative leading campus sustainability endeavors. Its partners include the university's Sustainability Task Force, Green UH Student Leadership Council and volunteer Eco Reps.

Green UH promotes daily green practices on campus through trayless dining, office and residence hall recycling programs, campus recycling receptacles, green commuting tips and green computing. Also, Green UH oversees the campus' community garden.

Each year, UH students also participate in the national Recyclemania competition. This year, the university has collected recyclable materials equivalent to 22 metric tons of carbon dioxide (comparable to taking 65 cars off the road).

UH also hosts annual sustainability events including Green UH Day and the Earth Day Carnival. This year's carnival is set for 10 a.m. 3 p.m., April 19 in the university's Butler Plaza (in front of the UH M.D. Anderson Library).

A highlight of last year's green efforts was the installation of the campus' first solar array. Through a $140,000 gift from Green Mountain Energy, UH received 88 photovoltaic solar panels for the university'
