Here are some examples of photos submitted already:
"I pledge to be more 'weary' of what I eat, considering environmental impact and virtual water of the food...no matter how GREEN the food is. Virtual Water, also called hidden water, is the water that goes into production of a product, such as the water for the plants necessary for production. For more info check out here. Also, seeking more local food decreases the transportation needed for the food, thus decreasing the energy footprint of the food product!" -- Abbas, Green Campus Team Manager
"I pledge to spend more time outdoors in the glorious sunshine to remind myself of what it is I'm working to preserve and protect!" -- Melissa, Internship Coordinator Assistant in the Sustainability Office
