Green Your Office

Green Your Office

Every office plays a role in Pomona College achieving carbon neutrality!

By making a few simple changes, offices can reduce their environmental footprint, help the College save money, and work towards Pomona's long-term sustainability goals.

Discounted EV Charging

Pomona offers EV charging at four locations on campus through the Chargepoint network:

Faculty, staff and students can request a discounted rate of $0.20/kWh by following the instructions on this guide (log in with your Pomona account). Guest charging is available for $1.25 per hour.

ReCoop Office

The Sustainability Office has a wide selection of gently used office supplies and furniture available for free to Pomona faculty and staff. Email the Sustainability Office to see what's currently available in our inventory, or stop by our office in Harwood to donate items for reuse!

Rideshare Program

Consider carpooling to reduce transportation-related emissions. The rideshare program gives $2/day to employees who carpool, walk, bike, drive ZEVs or use public transit, and rideshare pays for up to $100 of monthly public transportation commuting costs.


Offices can borrow Greenware (reusable plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery) for events for free. Place a request using our checkout form.

Waste Signage

Did you know that plastic take-out containers and paper towels are not recyclable? The Sustainability Office has signage available to help you sort your waste! We have laminated signs and stickers for trash, recycling, and compost. Email the Sustainability Office to get the signs sent to you through intercampus mail.

Compost Bins

Offices can check out a free small compost bin for fruit and vegetable scraps and coffee grounds. The Sustainability Office has partnered with the Pomona College Organic Farm for weekly office pick-ups.
