This year, over 200 members of the Class of 2017 signed the Green Graduation Pledge, an indication of their desire to continue their commitment to sustainability after college. The pledge reads: I pledge to take into account the social and environmental consequences of any future endeavors and to work to improve the sustainability of the communities in which I work, live and play.
The creation of the Green Graduation Pledge allows future alumni to carry on Wake Forest’s legacy of sustainability and civic responsibility throughout their careers and lives.
All signatories received a reusable travel mug printed with the pledge to reinforce sustainable habits. This is the seventh year that Wake Forest graduates have participated in this nationwide pledge movement.
