What can you and your office do to reduce your environmental impact?
By making a few simple changes, offices can reduce their environmental footprint, help the College save money, and work towards Pomona's long-term sustainability goals.
The Sustainability Office has a wide selection of gently used office supplies and furniture available for free to Pomona faculty and staff. Email the Sustainability Office to see what's currently available in our inventory, or stop by our office in Harwood to donate items for reuse!
Offices can check out a free small compost bin for fruit and vegetable scraps and coffee grounds. The Sustainability Office has partnered with the Âé¶¹Å®ÀÉ Organic Farm for weekly office pick-ups.
Did you know that plastic take-out containers and paper towels are not recyclable? The Sustainability Office has signage available to help you sort your waste! We have laminated signs and stickers for trash, recycling, and compost. Email the Sustainability Office to get the signs sent to you through intercampus mail.
Offices can borrow Greenware (reusable plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery) for events for free. Place a request using our .
Consider carpooling to reduce transportation-related emissions. The rideshare program gives $2/day to employees who carpool, walk, bike, drive ZEVs or use public transit, and rideshare pays for up to $100 of monthly public transportation commuting costs.
