Sustainability at home

Whether you live on or off-campus, there are many ways you can make your footprint more sustainable. Please consider:

  • Making sure your windows are closed during the winter
  • Turning off your lights and computers when not in use
  • Keeping showers to a reasonable length of time: hot water creates a significant environmental footprint
  • Public transit, cycling and carpooling
  • Turn off lights and computers when not in use
  • Use the recycling system provided
  • Use the water fountains instead of buying bottled water. Most are equipped with bottle fillers so you can use your own reusable bottles

Visit the Sustainability at Home page to learn about other projects you can lead at home.
