Why? How?

GREEN IS NOT JUST A COLOR ANYMORE


It's a lifestyle -- everything from what we eat to what we wear can have a positive impact on the environment.

The Green Gator provides various resources and helpful information about going green at the University of Florida and in Gainesville.

Becoming a more environmentally conscious individual doesn't require hard work or a lot of money. A few simple, everyday changes can make a huge impact on the environment.


So what are you waiting for? Get started!
