Go Blue Goes Green (from CVC-eBrief)
Go Blue Goes Green
University of Michigan is making efforts to cut down on energy usage and change practices to become more environmentally conscientious.
Here are some simple steps to take which add up to a big difference:
1. When you leave a room and won’t be returning for a bit, turn off the lights. This includes the bathroom, break room, conference rooms, and your office.
2. Implement paper-reducing strategies such as printing on both sides of the paper and re-using
3. Bring a sweater and leave it at work so it is available on chilly days.
4. To reduce the amount of trash, stop using throw-away cups, plates and utensils. Ask everyone to bring in a reusable cup from home, a reusable plate, or even a set of eating utensils to reduce the amount of plasticware thrown away each day.
