Mission Statement

Greek Sustainability, popularly known as Green Greeks, is on a mission to help CU’s Greek community reduce its environmental impact. We aim to transform all chapter houses and annexes into prime examples of energy and water efficient living spaces, to foster greater environmental understanding, to teach proper waste diversion, to build positive lifelong habits, and to shape the Greek community into champions of sustainability.

 

Who We Are

Green Greeks is comprised of Green Greek-representatives from each house and the Greek-wide sustainability coordinators who supervise their efforts. The goals of a Green Greek-rep include establishing behaviors that aim to lower the carbon footprint, energy usage, and wasteful tendencies of their house and active members. Helping coordinate EcoVisits, presenting to chapters on sustainability iniatives, planning Greek Week events, and promoting sustainability themed events are examples of the responsibilities held by eco-reps. Attending group meetings to help strategize outreach on campus but also nationally- every Univeristy should have a Green Greek Team!
