Topic of the Month: Going Green

What environmental initiatives does your student protégé see around campus?  What do they do to support “going green” initiatives at school and at home?

Is your alumni mentor and their business taking steps to “go green?”  What initiatives are they taking and does it change the way they approach a task or event?
