Today and tomorrow many students are leaving for their holiday break. Below is The Green Minute that we published last week, which contains a helpful green tip sheet for the student leaving campus for the holidays.
For today’s Green Minute, we wanted to do something particularly focused on college students leaving for their Holiday break.
During this past Thanksgiving holiday break, one of our readers forwarded a “Green Tip Sheet” produced by the University of North Carolina’s Sustainability blog and their Sustainability Office. The tip sheet focuses on reducing energy on campus, primarily within student housing, during the Christmas/Holiday break.
Check it out and if you are a student, share the tip sheet below on your campus:
These tips will help keep your building safe and energy-efficient. They also apply at home.
Most of the tips on the list combat what we call in the energy efficiency business, Energy Vampires. Check out this Green Minute about the savings that can be made by just turning off the lights and unplugging anything with a plug.
