The 3 Greenest Spots at SLU
Edward A. Doisy Research Center
» A Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified building, the center is constructed with green materials such as bamboo, cork and recycled steel. It features a "green roof" and locker rooms for employees who commute by bike.
Fresh Gatherings Cafe
» This cafeteria in the Allied Health Building, a project of the nutrition and dietetics department, uses locally sourced foods and biodegradable utensils. It's supplemented by the SLU teaching gardens, which the nutrition and dietetics department maintains and uses to educate the community.
Sustainability Wall of Fame
» Located in Litteken Hall, the wall showcases sustainability awards given to SLU and green programs taken on by SLU's facilities services division, such as a lighting replacement project for two University parking garages. Launched three years ago, the project has paid for itself and saves an estimated 1.2 million kilowatt hours per year.
