Do your part!

Making small changes can add up to making a big difference. Do your part! Remember to reduce your waste, and when you can't, buy reusable items. If neither can be done, recycle your materials. You can also use alternative transportation, conserve water, and purchase sustainably produced items.

The FSC Environmental Club will launch in Fall 2023. Contact our Sustainability Manager for more information on how to get involved.
