Brrrr . . . Welcome Back!

Join In this Spring Semester!

We have two competitions coming up this term -- RecycleMania, Campus Conservation National & a host of other upcoming Green events!

It may be called "Spring Term" but so far January 2015 has been anything but Spring-y. Not to worry, there are so many events coming up that you will have so many ways to stay busy that it will really feel Spring before you know it.

Starting February 1st, our annual 8-week competition, RecycleMania 2105 begins. This is your chance to do your Very Best to Always Recycle and encourage (nudge) others to do the same!

Again this Spring term we will be taking part in the Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) competition. For three weeks, February 23 – March 13, WSU will be monitoring and working hard to reduce use of electricity on campus. You can do your part by turning off lights and electrical devices when not in use and help others to do the same.

This year we will be focusing on educating students as well as faculty and staff about ways to conserve energy and reduce-reuse-recycle resources. Watch for more information and do your part to reduce your Energy and Resource Footprint. We all pitch in and we all can benefit in the long run!
