The 2015-2016 Hoofprint is kicking off- we have 248 tons of carbon to off set for club sports travel for the 14-15 academic year.

To help us off-set please make a pledge this quarter of the things that you will be willing to change to be more sustainable in energy, water, and waste conservation. The document is a google form and your YES answers are your pledges. Each quarter you can pledge again if we have not off-set the 248 tons.

Thank you for helping us off-set our carbon!

The Bronco Hoofprint Calculator was first developed by a team of Environmental Ethics Fellows at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics: Christina Lesnick, SCU '13, Samantha Juda, SCU '13, and Tim Verengel, SCU '13. 
Raffle Prizes

The pledge is based on the honor system. By giving your name at the end of each survey, you will be entered into a monthky raffle to win sustainable prizes. Here is just a sample of what we will be giving out this year.

We are also getting ready to ship 15 banners to a company to turn them into bags for a fee; but these will be added to the prizes once we have them ordered, created and returned to campus.

Instagram Challenge

You can also add the hashtag "#HoofprintChallenge" to any of your Instagram photos, allowing Campus Recreation & the Center for Sustainabilty to follow participants' progress. Photos that get the most likes will also be automatically entered to win a raffle prize.
