Commit to Living Sustainably
Most people start out every January with a full list of new year's resolutions. By February, we've often all forgotten about working out more, using Instagram less or taking more time to call grandma. But the new year isn't the only time to work on building better habits! The Office of Sustainability is here to remind you that we have the power to make choices every day to keep our world cleaner and healthier. Remember to do small things like take the stairs instead of the elevator, turn off the lights when you leave the room and recycle your soda can. Better yet, start carpooling with friends, turning down the AC and bringing your own reusable bottle to campus. These small changes are easy and can add up to a big impact. Plus, they will save you money and make you healthier. It's never too late to go green!
