About Sustainability at Coastal Carolina University

Sustain Coastal is committed to transform Coastal Carolina University into an environmentally sustainable university through campus operations, student curriculum, engaging students through learning and outreach, and collaboration in the community through sustainable stewardship of resources.

Established in 2005, the Sustainability office coordinates sustainable green projects and programs on campus and in the community, including recycling, water refill stations, waste reduction, conservation, transportation, as well as campus events such as the Farmers Markets, Sustainability Fair, Landfill on the Lawn, Celebrate the Earth and Campus Salvage.

The office manages the Eco-Rep Leaders, the Student Green Team and serves as an advisor to the Students for Environmental Awareness club.

In September 2013, a partnership with TD Bank was announced. Read the press release here, Major gift will support sustainability, athletics and scholarships.
