Green Top Ten, Redux

Tufts is called one of 10 universities that "get" green by the Sierra Club for the second year in a row

Tufts is one of 10 universities "that get green," according to Sierra, the magazine of the Sierra Club. In fact, this is the second year running that Tufts has earned that designation, which is reported in the cover story "10 Coolest Schools" in the September/October issue.

The magazine says that Tufts' "recent eco-moves include joining a program that lets students help pay for renewable energy projects in Massachusetts through their electricity bills and creating a campus printing service that uses soy-based inks and recycled paper." It also notes that Tufts is publishing a new campus guide that shows "where students can find such greenery as free compact fluorescent light bulbs, recycling bins and Zipcars."

Among the other notably green colleges according to Sierra: University of Colorado at Boulder, Oberlin College and the University of Washington at Seattle.
