NWF and Carbonfund.org Help You Graduate Green This Spring

Written by  Linda

Are your graduation robes made of recycled plastic bottles? Did you find your dress shoes at the secondhand shop?  Take the next step in greening your graduation with National Wildlife Federation’s Campus Ecology Program and Carbonfund.org! 

Achieve a carbon-neutral graduation ceremony by investing in verified and validated carbon offsets that support renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects, at a special rate for Campus Ecology program campus partners.  Honor each graduate with the gift of carbon offsets to send them out into the world a little bit greener.   

The NWF Campus Ecology Program provides tools and resources to help students, staff, campus greening committees and sustainability officers “take a big step to make a smaller footprint” when it comes to campus greenhouse gas emissions and reducing the campus’s overall environmental footprint.

In addition to graduation greening programs, NWF Campus Ecology and Carbonfund.org can assist colleges and universities with various sustainability initiatives, including plans to reduce or neutralize emissions from facility energy consumption, grounds maintenance and operations, travel and events year-round.

For more information on how to offset your campus's graduation ceremony this spring or to purchase carbon offsets for other events, travel, and campus operations, please contact Linda Kelly at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
