Small Footprint Pledge
The Small Footprint Pledge is a way for all UMD students, faculty, and staff to make a commitment to minimize their environmental impact by adopting new green habits. Members of the UMD community can select any number of items from the pledge action list – just one action, or even all twelve – and pledge to adopt that action for a week, for a semester, or for a whole year. It's easy to make one change for a finite period of time, and this pledge may serve as a stepping stone for long term or permanent changes in personal behavior. Through tracking pledges, we can calculate the total impact of all Small Footprint Pledges and demonstrate the collective effect of our individual actions.
