Good Grades For “Bein’ Green”

Take a look at yesterday’s New York Times Sunday Magazine which is dubbed “The Green Issue” featuring a bevy of articles to help all of us keep our carbon footprints that much smaller.

In the “Learn” section of the magazine, the first item is titled “How Green is My Campus?” and features the environmental stewardship policies of the University of Washington for which we earned an A- on the College Sustainability Report Card, published by the Sustainable Endowments Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The UW is one of only six schools to receive this mark, the highest given in the most recent survey.

Nice to get some national recognition for our collective efforts to improve the environment.
