The mission of the Green Campus Cooperative is to promote social justice and sustainability by encouraging more responsible and sustainable patterns of consumption on university campuses and in the broader community. There are two primary ways in which we pursue this mission.
First, the cooperative provides its members with affordable, quality products and services that are produced in a sustainable fashion. For us, this entails offering products that have Fairtrade and organic certification.
Second, the cooperative offers opportunities and support for its members, especially students, to actively engage in all aspects of its business operations. In particular, we seek to provide students with experiential education opportunities (e.g., through placement courses, internships, research assignments, summer employment programs, etc.). Through such opportunities, we seek to foster the development of the next generation of sustainable social entrepreneurs.
