This exhibit was curated by the staff of the Sustainability at Duke office, with input from a variety of departments on campus. It is an effort to educate the public about simple steps to take to decrease our carbon footprint, but also to share a variety of resources and practices currently taking place on campus. The exhibit includes just a few of the sustainability activities on campus, but there are, of course, many more. For more information about sustainability visit the Sustainability at Duke website. This on-line exhibit includes some of the text from the exhibit as well as a few other resources to help you live a more sustainable life! This exhibit was supported by a grant from the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.
