Founded in the heart of Seattle's University District, this program is run entirely by students and aims to make the UW Greek Community a more sustainable place. Through impactful action and innovative strategies, the GGRP has become a national leader for the sustainability movement on college campuses.

See What We’re Doing

The University of Washington as an institution is a leader in sustainability. Yet prior to the Green Greek Representative Group, the Greek Community, housing over 15% of the undergraduate population in 50 residential chapter houses, had not been wholeheartedly engaged in campus sustainability efforts. This lack of engagement resulted in huge amounts of waste, high utility costs, and many missed opportunities to take action and create change, especially in a community full of resources and leaders.

The movement for sustainability on college campuses is rapidly gaining momentum and while UW as an institution has the opportunity to be at the forefront, the UW Greek Community has had the opportunity to be the leader for chapters nationwide. In our first year, we worked collaboratively to create a promotional video that represents the program.
