Office Sustainability Tip of the Week Wrap Up

With the Spring 2013 semester quickly coming to a close, we wanted to thank everyone for reading the “Office Sustainability Tip of the Week” series throughout this academic year.  Hopefully you enjoyed reading the entries and learned some new information that you can put into practice in your daily lives (in AND outside of the office).  We covered a lot of ground, so here’s a quick re-cap of the different topics we discussed with links to the original articles:


Spring Cleaning

Meatless Mondays

Litter on Campus

Donating Blood

Turning Consumers Green

Utilizing MS Outlook to Conserve Paper

Charitable Donations

Forming a Green Team

Social Sustainability

Junk Mail

Green Thanksgiving

Green Meetings

Your Office Kitchen

Conserving Energy in the Office

Coffee & Sustainability (K-Cups)


Whoa — that’s a lot of topics!  We know you’ve probably already committed each one to memory, but feel free to go back and read through each one to see if you may have missed anything.   We guarantee you’ll learn something new!  The PCS Action Group members that came up with ideas, wrote, and edited the “Office Sustainability Tip of the Week” series this academic year were Kevin Caffrey, Elizabeth Sanders, Robert Louzek, and Dre Anthes.
