Discover Lasell


xzAt Lasell University, environmental sustainability means "going green" in every aspect, from our building maintenance and dining options to our involvement with the community.

Lasell is embarking on a course of action that will lead to an 80% reduction in campus carbon emissions by 2050. Our entire Lasell community is working together to ensure a greener environment and future.

What We're Doing


Get Involved

Sustainability starts with you! Here are some ways you can make a difference.

Join the LEAF Club

LEAF (Lasell Environmental Action Force) promotes action, spreads awareness, and incorporates the environment into everyday living, both on- and off-campus. We do this by partnering with other organizations and sponsoring events that encourage respect and appreciation for the environment. LEAF helps put on the Earth Day Celebrations and hosts movie nights, craft nights, trivia nights, and other events throughout the year.

Donate to Lasell Leftovers

Do you have clothing, school supplies, household items, small appliances, or food you no longer need? Look for Lasell Leftovers collection bins and donate your items to non-profit organizations. During move-out days, three collection bins are placed in every residence hall and house. Lasell staff and faculty volunteer to sort donated items for distribution to local organizations.

In 2018, 1,500 pounds of clothing, bedding, non-perishables, and school supplies were donated to Big Brother Big Sister Waltham, Pet Supplies Plus, the Newton Food Pantry, and local elementary schools, respectively.
