The University actively advocates for green economy.
Among the enterprise activities being undertaken by the Campus Sustainability Office in particular are the selling of composts and seedlings from the Ecology Center, as well as the recovered recyclables from DLSU-D's Material Recovery Facility.
The Campus Sustainability Office also spearheaded the VERDE Garden Environment Workshop to promote sustainable practices in urban gardening. Modified set ups are also sold during these events.
The proceeds from these activities count as a source of income for the University's Environment Trust Fund.
LasalleDa Trade Bazaar
The trade bazaar which is a project of DLSU-D since 2008, is managed by the Lasallian Community Development Center (LCDC) to provide a venue to respond to the needs of its partners. One of the major thrusts and concerns of LCDC is to assist the different economic activities of its partner communities and organizations by providing them venue inside the university to market and promote their products through Trade Bazaar Projects. With restrictions brought on by health protocols imposed by the government amid the pandemic, the bazaar took on a different form and transitioned to the online platform. The LasalleDa is DLSU-D’s Virtual Bazaar organized by the Advancement and Resource Generation Office (ARGO) and a Technical Working Group. The live selling event seeks to generate funds for the One La Salle Scholarship Endowment Fund and connect partner establishments with the network of Lasallian faculty, students, staff, and alumni. It provides a platform for small and medium enterprises to market their sustainable products.
