Make a personal commitment to Go Green in at least one area.


2. Go Green by Making Small Changes:


  • Use reusable shopping bags

  • Recycle old class notes

  • Turn off the light when you exit the room

  • Take shorter showers

  • Unplug electronics when they are not being used

  • Take cell phone off the charger when the charge is complete

  • Wash laundry in cold water instead of hot water

  • Turn off computer completely at night

  • Repurpose something (Think Pinterest!)
