Notable GHG Reduction and Sustainability Projects
St. Paul’s Green Team is a student led and operated program and mentored by St. Paul’s staff that began in January (2013) with 6 volunteers and has now grown to approximately 20 members (as of September 2013). The Green Team has launched a successful sustainability awareness campaign revolving around educational videos available for free online (e.g. Ted Talks). Topics covered in the past couple of months include water consumption and waste management, among others. St. Paul’s Green Team has held several successful events (e.g. Water Week aimed at reducing water consumption doing key things like encouraging students to not use a food tray).
