Earth Month is a celebration of our planet and the amazing people it supports! We host events throughout April to engage the UCLA community about sustainability. During these events, we get environmental leaders both from UCLA and beyond to come speak about their research and experience.
The Fair Trade campaign is part of a national movement of university campaigns. We seek to raise awareness about Fair Trade options on campus and help students understand how buying Fair Trade impacts the lives of individuals around the world.
We educate the UCLA student body on the various ways in which we consume, waste, and can conserve water in our daily lives. The first step to a more sustainable water future is acknowledging and understanding our excessive water consumption so we place education and outreach programs at the forefront of our campaign.
Project TEAL (Training for Environmental Activists & Leaders) empowers young leaders to become proactive environmental stewards. Partnering with @herbicidefreecampus, we educate students on the health hazards of toxic herbicides and work for cleaner herbicide alternatives on college campuses. We also address how our communities (mainly low-income and communities of color) are disproportionately affected by the consequences of poor air quality. We host free environmental workshops, speaker panels, and more!
Our campaign advocates for sustainable and affordable waste practices on campus and worldwide. We work in support of the UC-wide goal of Zero Waste by 2020, and believe the key to this initiative is student engagement. We utilize a multi pronged approach that expands beyond the world of waste to encourage individuals and institutions to implement lower impact practices.
Our campaign publicizes E3 and campus wide events through Instagram, Facebook, and our email list.
