EcologiCo was born in the Spring semester of 2014, following the The Environmental Working Group (established fall 2010).
Ecologico actively investigates ways to make campus an environmentally friendly place and to teach students to lead a more sustainable life. The committee maintains and weekly improves the garden, encourages recycling and has initiated projects combining sustainability and community service. It also works in collaboration with the Utrecht University Green Office and runs a Taste Before You Waste projects, where volunteers sign up to pick up left over food from stores and redistribute it to soup kitchens.
