Edmonds College Marks Strides in Sustainability on Campus


LYNNWOOD — Edmonds College has much to celebrate for Earth Month, including its first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building, renovated Meadowdale Hall, as well as a new Green Team of student advocates for sustainability on campus and cost savings of an estimated $132,019 annually due to energy efficiency upgrades made with State Jobs Act funding.
