Campus Life

?Living Green

Queen's is committed to making our planet a healthier place, starting with our own campus. Living green every day is about reducing our impact on the environment through choices about what and how much we consume, such as energy and food products, and what we leave behind, such as garbage and pollution. As a member of the Queen's community, there are a number of easy ways for you to "Live Green."
