Sustainability at ESF
Living Sustainably Off Campus

Talented Office of Sustainability student employees created the off-campus sustainable living guides you will find below. These guides include information about shopping at local co-ops, supporting local farms through CSAs, dining at local farm-to-fork restaurants, alternative transportation methods to get around Syracuse, and living zero-waste at home.
