Sustainability Tool Library

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The student Green Fee has been funding projects since 2008, many of which have required tools and equipment for construction of physical structures. The tools are often only needed at the beginning of the project, but since no structure existed to gather, store and maintain these tools, they often became the property of the project. This meant new projects were asking for basic equipment every year. By partnering with Facilities for supervision/education and the W&M Keck Lab for storage, we now have the Sustainability Tool Library. A resource that has proven fiscally responsible by reducing the need to redundantly fund items, environmentally responsible by reducing resource use in the creation of redundant tools, and socially advantageous through the creation of a system that provides lessons and supervision in the use of tools that students may not previously have been familiar with.
