Home (About Us)

SSB is an environmental consulting resource for the WashU community. SSB is an entity of SU that serves two primary purposes:

  1. to allocate funding to sustainable projects on campus.  A member or members of the Wash U community may submit a proposal and budget, and SSB will vote on the decision to help support and advise accepted projects. Examples of projects include: handing out LED lightbulbs, subsidizing recyclable plastic cups to replace red #6 plastic cups, the compost pilot program for residential colleges. 
  2. to “event green,” or to make campus events as zero-waste as possible. We work on events that range in size from Thurtene and WILD to Shabbat dinners to small club meetings. We offer access to free compostable plates and cutlery as well as sustainable resources for student groups, such as Green Dining Alliance-approved restaurants in St. Louis.
