Student Led Sustainability Initiatives and Organizations:
Chipeta Garden and Pinnacles Greenhouse
The Sustainability Fund was created to provide Western students access to financial resources to initiate projects that (1) support Western's use of more sustainable and renewable energy, (2) reduce unnecessary consumption of goods, (3) increase reuse of usable goods and recycling of materials, or (4) promote the ethical stewardship of all resources and land on the Western State Colorado University campus.
The Sustainability Fund Committee encourages students to take advantage of this opportunity to support and enhance sustainable practices on the Western State Colorado University campus.
