Our campus is a living laboratory for environmental sustainability with LEED-certified buildings, water bottle-filling stations, wind turbines, and a community garden that facilitates a robust food loop.

To increase awareness of materials that can be recycled on campus, the Office of Sustainability is hosting a Project Runway event focusing on recycling.

Teams of 2-6 students will work together to create a fun wearable garment from materials you can recycle on campus. Follow this link to register your team. Student teams will be given a variety of recycled materials and one hour to create a unique fashion piece out of recycled materials. One person from each team will model the outfit on our runway in the Farinon Atrium. There will be a judge’s winner and a people’s choice winner. If you’re looking to join a team but haven’t found members, email fechikkm@lafayette.edu to find other partners.

We’re working to cut global warming emissions, integrate sustainability into the curriculum, and cultivate solutions to ensure a healthier environmental future. Exploring sustainable living on campus prepares students for a life of environmental citizenship.
