Live Sustainably

Do the right thing at home and on campus by following these steps to reduce your carbon footprint:

  • Divert your waste into the correct bins. What goes where?
  • Choose alternative transportation for your commute
  • Conserve energy by shutting down your computer at the end of the day, turning off lights when they aren't needed, and closing the blinds on hot, sunny days.

Learn more about Mount Royal's Do The Right Thing campaign.

Host a Green Event

The Green Event initiative recognizes members and groups who are prioritizing sustainability on campus through event planning. Examples of checklist items:

  • Bottled water is not provided at the event.
  • Giveaway items have a clear purpose or support sustainable behaviour.
