The College of William and Mary, a university that Sierra Magazine rated as failing in sustainable initiatives, has come a long way since. The mechanisms to attain a more sustainable campus gained momentum by students who voted to leverage a Green Fee of $15/semester on themselves, to help move the struggle from logistical to operational. This 17 minute film documents that process and speaks of plans to come.
