The UVM Eco-Reps program is one of the oldest and most well-respected Eco-Reps programs in the country, focusing on sustainability outreach and education on campus through a peer-to-peer network.

The Eco-Reps Program began as a pilot project in the Spring of 2004 through the UVM Recycling Office. Since the start, the program sought to bridge the disconnect between the overarching environmental commitment of the institution and individual student behavior and culture. 

In December 2005, the UVM Eco-Reps Program received a Governor's Award for Environmental Excellence and Pollution Prevention.
