Take ownership of your impact on the environment and commit to making sustainable choices in your daily life.


The Own Your Impact campaign began as a partnership between UC San Diego’s Sustainability Resource Center students and staff. Five simple sustainability pledges address energy, waste, transportation, food, and water. Each pledge consists of 10 commitments for environmentally conscious practices. The campaign and pledges challenge individuals to own their environmental, fiscal and social impacts on our resources. Pledges are designed to apply to the daily practices of a diverse community and help illustrate that small, practical changes make a positive impact on our planet. Find these pledges at
