Robyn Whitted discusses the KY EXCEL program with students from the Shepherdsville Elementary School.Join us for our monthly EcoReps Lunch & Learn workshop featuring a free vegetarian lunch and locals making a difference in sustainability!

To kickoff the spring series, we'll hear from Robyn Whitted, Director of KY EXCEL - Kentucky Excellence in Environmental Leadership. KY EXCEL is the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection's voluntary environmental leadership program. The program offers unique opportunities for public, corporate, and private sectors to improve Kentucky’s diverse and wonderful environment by:

  • Providing multiple membership levels that are open to any individual, organization, community or business that wishes to voluntarily contribute to Kentucky’s environmental excellence;
  • Publicly recognizing environmental stewardship and superior environmental performance;
  • Offering incentives to encourage participation and growth within the program; and
  • Aligning with other leadership programs, including U.S. EPA’s National Environmental Performance Track program.

The Sustainability Council’s EcoRepEco-Reps logos program is designed to move students, faculty & staff beyond talk to action for a more sustainable UofL! We provide basic training & resources, service opportunities, and leadership positions as a point-person & peer-to-peer advocate for sustainability.

This spring, we continue our series of in-person workshops each month on last Fridays at noon in Ekstrom Library room W210. Join us for lunch and bring your reusable plate, utensils, and cup to minimize waste! All are welcome. More info on EcoReps website.
