    Get involved! Take the pledge to become an active participant to help IIT become the "most sustainable urban university in the United States".

    This year, I will commit to new ways to reduce my own environmental impact and help with IIT's sustainability efforts. I will make every effort to:

    Reduce my energy use and
          greenhouse gas emissions

    • Turn off the lights and electronics (including computers and power strips) when I leave the room
    • Ride my bike, walk, or take the "el"

    Reduce the paper I print:

    • Don't print unless necessary and use double-sided printing when I do
    • Hold paperless meetings, review online

    Reduce the waste I produce

    • Use a reusable water bottle; fill it, not the landfill
    • Donate old clothing to charities
    • Participate in trayless dining
    • Use recycling bins around campus and elsewhere

    Get involved, Encourage others
           to get involved

    • Attend a forum
    • Work on a sustainability project
    • Join a Green Org
    • Start a challenge, submit ideas
