Living Planet Blue

At Michigan Athletics, we strive to be the leaders and best in every way. That extends to our impact on the environment. We endeavor to adapt and promote sustainable practices and create a culture of environmental stewardship.

In partnership with the Office of Campus Sustainability, we have developed a strategy for reducing our impact on the environment and established many sustainability goals.

Steered by a committee comprised of team members, student-athletes and campus partners, the athletic department is committed to sustainability and living Planet Blue.

Waste Reduction and Recycling  » Waste Reduction and Recycling - Game Day and Every Day
