Welcome to the University of Colorado at Boulder's personal sustainability platform!
  

 

This site is for CU-Boulder students, faculty, staff and alumni to build individual sustainability plans, track and report progress, and see the impact of their commitments and measure carbon footprint reduction.  There are more than 100 sustainability actions to choose from.  Participants can select eco-friendly actions that are already done at home or on campus and can pledge to do new actions.  Participants can choose to share actions on facebook or upload photos.  

To set up an account, please use a "colorado.edu" email address.

One Million Acts of Green is sponsored and managed by the University of Colorado Environmental Center
