Unfortunately, too many of these giveaways are low-quality novelty items that end up in the trash. This is out of step with our institutional values around sustainability and with the values of our students, who are more environmentally conscious than ever.
University Relations and the Office of Sustainability have created this guide to Greener Giveaways in hopes of dramatically reducing this costly, unnecessary and environmentally unfriendly waste stream.
By adopting new ways of promoting ourselves, we can protect our eco-friendly brand and our planet. This guide is intended to point the way.
