At the Center of Sustainable Living


SMC student worker and president of the Eco Action club, Lauren Hollenstein, brings us into a revolutionary world of water bottle couches and sunflower seed desks as she guides a tour through the award winning Center for Environmental and Urban studies. The unique building exhibits a seemingly typical campus facade at first glance, but as Hollenstein guides student reporter, Rome Harris, deeper into the rabbit hole of sustainable functionality, it becomes apparent why this building led to Santa Monica College receiving the 2015 Leadership Award in Resource Management from nonprofit Green Technology.
