What actions do you regularly take to be sustainable?
I always drink tap water and take the stairs when I can. I am also a much better recycler than most of my colleagues.
What sustainability efforts have you noticed on campus?
I see the signs telling me to take the stairs, and I feel guilty wasting the electricity when I have to take the elevator from the basement of CIEMAS.
What is one thing you would make more sustainable on campus?
Recycling! I wish there were more recycling bins. I have to carry cans from one building and down two flights in another to recycle them simply because I don't pass a bin.
