BLUE (Benevolent Living Upon Earth) raises awareness about healthy, holistic living, green initiatives and environmental change. Transitioning to an eco-friendly 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.

BLUE’s green initiatives on campus include:

  • Bottled Water Initiative
  • Go Green Initiative
  • The Green Student U
  • Planet Green: How to Go Green
