As SusCo our passion is to raise awareness for our environment and bring the concept of sustainability to students in every way possible. Some of the events that we organize include lectures about various sustainable companies, institutions or practices, for example Taste Before You Waste. We organize clothing exchanges where students can change unwanted clothing and in return take something back, this became a popular event as it is a great way of getting rid of old unwanted clothing and getting free new apparel. Another achievement are the Klean Kanteen stainless steel waterbottles we are selling to get rid of the disposable plastic ones still used by many students. We also aim to support/work together with other students and authorities on some bigger projects for the community, such as setting up proper recycling system among the campus. SusCo’s objective is to make UCR a more sustainable and environmentally friendly community open for ideas and initiatives to create and maintain greater sustainable practices among UCR students.
For a comprehensive guide on what you yourself can do to improve sustainability in your life, have a look at our green guide. It contains information about sustainability of everyday matters and how to improve it.
