Library Green Tip #3: Conserve electricity and water

April is Earth Month, so we'll be offering periodic tips on how you can help save resources while working in the library.

#3 Conserve energy and water

  • Turn off the lights in the group study rooms when you leave.
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevators.
  • Don't let the water run when you wash your hands or brush your teeth. Yes, a lot of people brush their teeth in the library.
  • Don't flush every time you use the toilet. (Ok, maybe leave that one for home).
  • Staff: turn off your computers when you leave in the evenings and set your computer to an energy saving mode for when you're away from your desk

Can you think of any other ways to conserve electricity or water, either on campus or elsewhere?

unplug chargers when you are done with them. Anything giving off heat is sucking ghost energy. That goes for coffee makers, tv's etc.
