Think Green, Be Green

  • Avoid printing when paperless options exist.
  • Print double-sided rather than single-sided.
  • Set computers to sleep after 5 minutes and turn off on nights, weekends, and holidays. Do not use screen savers.
  • Extend battery life by powering down devices.
  • Use rechargeable devices rather than those that use one-time-use batteries.
  • Do not throw batteries in the trash or campus recycling bins. Discard only in battery collection boxes.
  • Do not throw electronics in the trash or campus recycling bins. Broken or open electronics may be classified as hazardous waste.
  • Slay vampires! Many devices use electricity even when turned off; including phone chargers, computers, speakers, monitors, printers, and surge protectors. Plug devices into a power strip and power off or unplug the power strip when devices are not needed.
