With the help from Be Spartan Green, we’ve put together a video of environmental tips for this cold winter season. Here are some of the following ways you can save money and energy this season and help protect our environment, especially when you’ll be leaving the office for holiday breaks.
-Turn off all unneeded electronic equipment. Unplug all electronics or turn off the surge protector so they don’t use stand-by energy.
-Use plug control equipment such as the Smart Strip available at University Stores.
-Take the time to clean out and defrost refrigerators and freezers to make them more energy efficient.
-Dial down thermostats, especially at night and when you aren’t there. Dress in layers to feel warmer wherever you go.
-Laboratories should keep fume hood sashes closed for energy saving and safety reasons.
To share these tips to your friends and family, you can email or print this flyer.
