Welcome to Upstate's Think Green News!

Think Green news

The vast number of sustainable, environmentally friendly, and fiscally sound practices at Upstate Medical University remain our best kept secrets!

To spread the word in a format that is quick and to the point, we intend to highlight interesting initiatives, provide education on important topics, share the successes of our 'Think Green' Champions and others, pass along suggestions, and generally keep sustainability on people's radar, at work and at home. Please watch for this newsletter to be distributed institutionally on a regular basis.

Have a question, concern, suggestion or success story? We want to hear it. Email us at: green@upstate.edu.
