[ College – An Opportunity To Live Green! ]

Greenversations is an official blog of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA).   A recent post reflects on the college experience, whether it’s living in the dorms or an apartment off campus. It’s contains some simple ways a recently independent college student can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect the climate:

  • Buy ENERGY STAR products: You may be deciding which mini-fridge or light bulbs to purchase for your dorm or apartment. Look for ENERGY STAR products that meet energy efficiency requirements and can save you money while protecting the environment.
  • Turn off the lights: Our parents yelled at us for a reason. Leaving the lights on raises the energy bill. Whether you’re paying the bills in an apartment, or not paying the bills in a dorm, leaving the lights on uses more electricity and contributes to climate change.
  • Find out what else college students can do to protect the climate here.
