Welcome to Live Green!

Hey there, Iowa Staters and other interested readers! It’s time to get back on the blogging train, and you’ll have a new team of conductors this 2017-2018 academic year! The Office of Sustainability Live Green! Initiative leadership team is pictured below:

IMG_1741Each of us brings different strengths and skills to the team, but we’re all working diligently together to promote the field of sustainability in all three facets (environmental, economic, and social) and empower others to enact small (or big!) changes in their lifestyles and to think more about sustainability while out and about on campus and in the world. We hope this blog will be a source of inspiration as well as practical tips and tricks!

While we’ll all be contributing to the blog, Heidi Kalb and Paige Myers will be the primary points of contact. If you’ve got sustainability questions, or topics you’d like us to cover, send an email to pmyers@iastate.edu or kalbh@iastate.edu. We are excited to hear your ideas and questions, and to have you “aboard” on this journey!

I pledge to be more cognizant of my consumption.


I pledge to use reusable grocery bags and recycle plastic!
