Green Your Campus

Right now, you have the power to help the planet. Every product and service on your college campus has an environmental and social impact. By demanding that your school chooses Rainforest Alliance Certified™ products -- like coffee, tea and paper -- and commits to sustainability in school-related travel, you can lead the way toward a more sustainable future; a future in which workers are treated with respect, climate change is curbed, soils, waterways and wildlife are protected, and sustainability is the norm.

From crafting a letter to school officials asking for Rainforest Alliance Certified food and beverages on campus to educating and inspiring your fellow students and faculty, we provide the tools and templates you need to start making real change today.

Beyond Local

While sourcing local food and working with local businesses is important, many of the items you use most on campus can’t be local. Coffee, chocolate and many other products are grown and harvested in the tropics, where unsustainable farming practices threaten ecosystems and livelihoods. A comprehensive campus sourcing policy includes a commitment to certified sustainable products from all origins -- that’s where the Rainforest Alliance comes in.
