Suggestions for on-campus energy niceness below
So many possibilities for a photo-op!

Turn off–

  • a light
  • a monitor (NOT the CPU though)

Bring your own–

  • water bottle
  • mug (and get a discount at the cafeteria and at Starbuck’s)
  • eco-container (and avoid the take-out container cost [you can purchase the eco-container at the cafeteria])

Close–

  • a window
  • a door
  • the blinds

Sort your waste–

  • into compost, recycle, and landfill-bound receptacles

Move it–

  • Take the stairs to the second (or higher) floor

Open–

  • Your own door–no need to use the automatic opener unless you really need to

 

Be a part of  climate action and flick off–because hey, even lights and devices need a break!
