Through June 17, staff and faculty can apply for up to $500 through Duke’s Green Grant Fund to purchase sustainable items as part of earning a Green Workplace Certificationfor their office.
Money can be spent on items like energy-efficient light bulbs, reusable dishes, desk lamps and more. The Green Grand Fund is an annual fund made available to support a wide range of sustainability projects that benefit the Duke and Durham communities.
So far, six offices have received about $3,000 from the Green Grant Fund to buy sustainable office items. Dishes, cutlery and energy efficient lamps have been popular choices. That’s helped bring the total number of certified green workplaces to 45.
