Reducing, reusing, and recycling guide Weber State University's purchasing policies for sustainable and affordable office supplies.
What We've Done
- Over 30% of campus departments are using sustainably sourced and recycled content paper through the Green Department Program.
- WSU has purchased electric vehicles for university fleets to exemplify sustainable purchasing.
- Recycled content paper goods are available through WSU printing services.
What You Can Do
- Buy free trade, organic, or local products, or shop and donate your old items at thrift stores.
- Research the products you are looking to buy for reviews and think about the product's longevity and how much the product will be used - or buy reusable or rechargeable products for multiple uses.
- Buy items in bulk when possible to reduce packaging waste, and always bring your own bags and containers to shop with.
