The latest updates on sustainability at Stanford

Pack-a your Things, Give and Go
Through Give & Go, students can leave campus sustainably and offer their unwanted clothing, bikes, electronic equipment and household items to others who need it. Almost 100,000 tons of goods were diverted from landfill by students moving out in 2014. Pledge Today
Cardinal Green Labs Program Launches
Stanford is home to over 2 million sq ft of laboratory space and 5,000 research projects at any given time. The new Cardinal Green Labs program empowers lab occupants to operate their research space as sustainably as possible. Learn More
Stanford Offices Go Green 
11 campus buildings became more sustainable this year by participating in the Cardinal Green Office Program. 45 smart strips and 35 appliance timers were installed throughout the buildings, reducing campus' annual energy use by over 10,000 kWh. Learn More
R&DE to Reduce Irrigation Water Use by 46%
Residential & Dining Enterprises has partnered with Santa Clara Valley Water District and Stanford Utilities to reduce its landscaping irrigation by 33 million gallons annually. More than 20,000 pieces of equipment will be retrofitted across R&DE's 57 acres to achieve this ambitious target by fall 2015.
Reduce your department's carbon footprint by consolidating campus deliveries.  

Stanford Procurement is asking employees to participate in "Green Tuesday" by consolidating office supply orders to the first and third Tuesday of every month. Consolidating orders not only reduces fossil fuel consumption associated with transportation, it also cuts back on paper and packaging waste.
