Green Week

Academic Community Energy Food Materials Site Water

At Purdue, we strive for sustainability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. During Green Week, the entire Purdue community — students, faculty, staff, and locals from the Lafayette-West Lafayette area — come together to celebrate some of our campus sustainability efforts.

Each day of the week, we focus on one particular issue of sustainable living, such as energy efficiency, water management, alternative transportation, sustainable food, recycling, and community outreach.
