As the staff adviser for the UT Student Green Fund, I must start with how lucky I am to work with a great bunch of students. They are working hard to make UT more green and sustainable. Don’t have time right now to get involved with the Green Fund or other green initiatives on campus but want to make a difference? Then opt-in to the UT Student Green Fund! It’s only five dollars and if everyone opts-in, that creates huge potential for students like you to make UT a better place.
What’s the Student Green Fund you ask? It’s a fund for students, by students, and managed by students. It is funded by voluntary student donations, and serves to finance student proposed and executed projects that promote sustainability, renewable energy, efficiency, waste reduction, and educational initiatives such as conferences, workshops, public classes, and internships. Some of the recent projects include water bottle refilling stations, prizes for last year’s Earth Fest, and currently they are working on a carpooling program! Your $5 could make more projects like these a reality!
