Campaign to Save a Million

Support our effort to save a million pages of paper.

Join our Campaign to Save a Million team, sign the pledge

You can make a direct impact on our carbon footprint, sign the commitments now.

The Campaign to Save a Million is one of the biggest sustainability initiatives in the history of the Student Association. This campaign aims to save 1 million pages of paper this academic year through encouraging students and faculty to print double-sided and minimize their printing wherever possible. In order to make this goal come to fruition we need support of everyone we can get.

I pledge to:

1. Only print when absolutely necessary.

If you have a reading that is available online, read it on the computer rather than printing it out. Only print when, for example, there is a paper that must be submitted in hard copy.

2. Make an announcement in one of my classes and ask my fellow students to print double-sided.

If there's a class where you know the professor, or feel that you can speak in the class (for example, in University Writing, which is a small and intimate class), reach out to your professor and ask if you can make an announcement about the campaign.

3. Reach out to my professors about the campaign and ask that they print double-sided whenever possible.

Some professors respond much better to feedback from students in their class, rather than a general announcement. Send an email, or go talk to your professor in office hours and ask them if they would be willing to limit printing and print double-sided.

4. Get more than 2 friends to be a part of the campaign team.

This effort will take a lot of us working together. Ask a friend who is interested in sustainability or passionate about making a difference on campus to see if they would be willing to commit to these pledges.
