Faculty pride doesn’t have to involve lame products or support wasteful consumerism…
Stylish sustainable Forestry SWAG starts here!
The Who? What? Why? of Greensales:
Greensales is a 100% volunteer run merchandise store, funded by the FUS and managed by two elected council representatives. Our mission is to provide quality, affordable, stylish and multi-functional Forestry swag to students, alumni, faculty and fans that will serve to last and to satisfy consumer needs beyond pure expressions of faculty pride, so as to discourage our tendencies towards over consumption.
With so many young and emergent fieldworkers in our student body looking to make first time work-wear purchases with limited budgets and knowledge, Greensales has developed a product line of high quality and professionally preferred work-wear items, subsidized at below cost student-pricing. Women in forestry are particularly challenged to find fitted and functional work-wear items; therefore, future Greensales product development aims to enhance access to female specific work-wear.
All profits earned from non-student sales are directed to subsidize student-pricing, giving alumni and faculty an opportunity through their purchases to support student access to quality work-wear products. Non work-wear products are also made a available to students at cost by the FUS, to maximize access and to further promote and encourage community service among students.
