The University of West Georgia’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability is easy to see. In its efforts to ensure a greener campus, UWG has completed several milestones, such as the addition of the all-electric Nissan Leaf vehicle to its fleet and its Tree Campus USA designation.

UWG’s stated objective throughout the eight-week long program is to “encourage our campus community to take a closer look at issues of waste production and waste diversion in conjunction with human consumerism and associated waste.” Read more ...
