Free Store

The Environmental Center hosts a biweekly campus Free Store. Anyone can participate by donating or picking up free items. The Free Store keeps usable items out of the landfill by following the old adage that one person’s trash is another’s treasure.

Green Purchasing

It is a Fort Lewis College best practice to use Green Seal and EcoLogo certified paper and chemical janitorial products. In addition, no bleach is used on campus. Hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners are used as a greener bleach alternative.

Recycling and Waste Reduction

Fort Lewis College participates in a user-friendly single-stream recycling program. Learn what can and cannot be recycled here. The Environmental Center recycles ink jets, toner cartridges, and batteries.

Water Bottle Filling Stations

Just say no to plastic bottles and the waste they create. Fill your water bottle in one of the water bottle filling stations on campus, or make use of the water fountains located in every building.
