BLUE: Benevolent Living Upon Earth

BLUE (Benevolent Living Upon Earth)


BLUE raises awareness about healthy, holistic living, green initiatives, and environmental change. The BLUE initiative grows stronger by holding events on campus to further promote a green lifestyle for other students and the Carlow community.

Transitioning to an ecofriendly community is a vital step to furthering the success of Carlow as an institution. BLUE helps this transition by educating the Carlow community about resources that further our understanding of green initiatives. The goal of BLUE is to achieve an environment that promotes the health and prosperity of all.

We only have this one Earth and we must do our best to take care of it. Simple changes in daily living can help minimize waste and save energy. We - as educated college students - must take action to keep the earth's resources thriving. If you would like to learn more ways to develop a ecofriendly lifestyle, please join BLUE, keep your eyes peeled for BLUE events on campus, and visit the websites listed below for awesome green ideas!
