We can all use new sources of inspiration when it comes to working toward greater sustainability. You can find them in this blog, where we profile some of the many people in the UNL community who make smart choices about the resources they use where they live, work and play.

The Student Organic Farm

Thursday, March 25, 2021

In a tucked-away corner of East Campus hidden behind the College of Law lies a small plot of land where students gather each week to connect, learn, and grow food for their peers. It is called the Student Organic Farm.

Hi! My name is Rachel Summers and I am an Environmental Studies major at UNL. I am currently studying to go into Environmental Law where I hope to eventually write environmental legislature, putting a focus on the need for sustainable practices and social justice issues within current policies.

Where do Graphics Come From?

Thursday, February 18, 2021

Hi, my name's Breanna Epp, I started as the graphic designer for the Office of Sustainability back at the beginning of August 2020. I jumped right in with my first major project to create signage for the OS's biggest event of the year, the Sustainability Summit. While this was kind of daunting at first, I was supported by my team, and it helped me gain confidence with the office. Since that giant task, I have taken on a variety of projects from creating signs and handouts for the new Recycling Pilot Program to creating templates for social media posts.

Have you heard about UNL’s recycling pilot project?

Thursday, February 11, 2021

Welcome to a new semester, Huskers! If you’ve been on campus over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a change in recycling and waste management in select buildings. In December, nearly 80 new grant-funded waste and recycling stations were installed in eight buildings as part of UNL’s recycling pilot project. These stations contain receptacles for paper, plastic and aluminum, and landfill materials and are located in centralized, high-traffic locations near restrooms, stairs and elevators, and building entrances.
