OSU in Tulsa promotes sustainability efforts for Earth Day
OSU in Tulsa will celebrate Earth Day with special projects to highlight the university's sustainability efforts. Beginning Monday, Call2Recycle will provide boxes at the Information Center in North Hall and the first-floor vending machines in Main Hall to collect rechargeable batteries for recycling.
Angelyn Holmes, energy education manager for OSU in Tulsa, will host a swap shop open house in North Hall 253 on Friday from 2-3 p.m. for faculty and staff to trade unwanted office items. Email Holmes for more information or to have an item picked up.
OSU in Tulsa faculty, staff and students can play an important role in energy conservation efforts by turning off lights, computers, monitors, printers and other electronic devices when not in use, and by recycling paper, plastic bottles and aluminum cans in appropriate bins.
