Green Mountain College

Green Mountain College is an Environmental Liberal Arts College in Poultney, Vermont. Ranked among the greenest schools in the country, it is all natural for it to strive in joining the exemplary universities and colleges certified as Fair Trade. It is certainly well positioned with its own farm and very large choice of local products in its dinning hall; however, awareness as well as a recognized pledge is necessary to further be a leader in sustainability.
