Clark College is committed to responsible stewardship of our environment. We are continually creating new strategies and opportunities to make Clark a greener place to work and study. At Clark, you’ll find students and faculty discussing issues about consumption and waste brought up by the college’s current Common Read text, Garbology. You can purchase a reusable water bottle in our Bookstore and refill it at bottle-filling stations located conveniently around the main campus and at our CTC facility. You can check out the ever-changing roster of environmentally themed events hosted by the college, from recycling drives to guest lectures. Check out some of the links and resources below to learn more about how you can become a Green Penguin.
