Sustainability Roundup: Coming to Campus

We’re about to have thousands of students move in to UConn’s Storrs campus at the end of this week, because classes start on Monday.  This week’s sustainability roundup is looking at some of the ways to stay green during move-in.

George Washington University provides some great tips to start off green in the dorms.

Once you’re on campus, you will probably be walking or biking a lot (which is super green!), so check out the safety guidelines from UConn Police.

The Guardian presented an interesting article this week about how much energy wireless computing and keeping everything in “the cloud” uses.  Although getting rid of excess paper usage through cloud computing is great, it’s not an unmitigated good – it still uses energy.

Don’t forget UConn’s recycling guidelines as you’re unpacking all your stuff!  Remember, with single stream, ALL your recycling can go in ANY recycling container, even if it’s labeled otherwise.
