Simple Ways To Save

You can help save energy and water on campus through these simple actions:

  • Hit the switch when you leave an empty room. Lighting accounts for 15 percent of energy use.
  • Pull the plug to prevent electronics from using energy when not in use.
  • Shut the sash of lab fume hoods, one of the biggest energy wasters on campus.
  • Turn off the tap while shaving, brushing teeth or any other time when you’re not actually using water.
  • Fix leaks fast to save gallons.
  • Shorten your shower to save about 2.5 gallons of water per minute.
