Sustainability Tip of the Week March 26th

Hello Campus Community,

Here is your March 26th Sustainability Tip of the Week. This week’s tip on the upcoming “Earth Hour” is brought to you by Adrienne! Thank you Adrienne!!


Hundreds of millions of people, businesses and governments around the world unite each year to support the largest environmental event in history – Earth Hour. Earth Hour is coming up on Saturday, March 31st at 8:30pm local time. All you have to do is turn off all lights, electronics, anything that gets plugged into an outlet for 1 hour. If you’d like to go above and beyond, try turning off all electronics overnight on Saturday.


More than 5,200 cities and towns in 135 countries worldwide switched off their lights for Earth Hour 2011 alone, sending a powerful message for action on climate change. It also ushered in a new era with members going Beyond the Hour to commit to lasting action for the planet. Without a doubt, it’s shown how great things can be achieved when people come together for a common cause.
