How eco-friendly is your college?

August 26, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A lot of people are looking to make eco-friendly choices these days. That includes picking a college. According to the Sierra Club three of the nation's "greenest" colleges are in California.

UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley, and UCLA all scored high, ranking seventh, eighth, and ninth on the conservation group's list of eco-friendly schools.

What does that mean exactly?

The Sierra Club looked at whether schools recycle waste, provide public transportation, and save energy.

A couple of local schools did very badly. The Sierra Club gave Azusa Pacific University and the University of La Verne a failing grade for eco-friendliness and ranked them near the bottom.
