At Peddie, sustainability is woven into our culture and has for decades been a primary consideration in the operation of the school.
In keeping with the challenge from Ambassador Annenberg to “strive for the highest quality of citizenship,” Peddie students take advantage of opportunities to be good stewards of our natural resources and our planet, and to pursue initiatives that reflect their own personal commitment to sustainability.
During the annual Peddie Purge, students and faculty work to repurpose unused and unwanted items. At the end of the school year, all items that are no longer wanted or needed are placed in boxes in dorm lounges and around campus. Students and faculty sort, fold and organize items and are free to take what they will use. Once school is closed for the year, items are donated to local organizations and charities.
