Lynn University hosted its third annual Sustainability Day Oct. 20, on the Perper Plaza Lawn. The day included green exhibits of hydroponic gardening, scooters, and hybrid and electric cars, local and sustainable snacks and drinks, and reusable water bottle giveaways.

“Sustainability Day is an opportunity for students and employees to learn what Lynn does to be more environmentally conscious,” said Alex Keller, assistant project manager for construction and sustainability at Lynn. “Each day, departments across campus support Lynn’s effort to become more sustainable—whether it’s facilities’ recycling, grounds’ landscape improvements or IT’s electronics recycling, everyone is doing their part.”

Green initiatives across Lynn’s campus include:

  • The Central Energy Plant, which reduces energy consumption by 612,000 kilowatts a year
  • Achieving LEED® Platinum certification for the Mohammed Indimi International Business Center, the highest level of endorsement awarded by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC)
  • Utilizing reclaimed water, rather than draining aquifer water, for irrigation through the implementation of IRIS (In-City Reclamation Irrigation System)
  • Retrofitting water fixtures and lighting equipment, and replacing more than 7,500 light bulbs
  • Providing green transportation options for students, including bike rentals and U-Haul Car Share
  • Teaching students in sustainable practices, such as trash cleanup of a local nature preserve through the Citizenship Project

Also as part of its commitment to create a more sustainable campus, Lynn will seek LEED certification of the Mary and Harold Perper Residence Hall and Christine E. Lynn University Center.
