Green Tips for Holiday Break

Green TipOSU in Tulsa is experiencing significant results in the university’s energy conservation and paper recycling programs. Together, OSU-Tulsa and OSU’s Center for Health Sciences saved $365,694 in energy costs from January to September of this year, representing a 31.5 percent savings.

In addition, the two campuses have recycled 18.5 tons of paper since May, reducing the university’s waste pick-up charges by $2,200. This is equivalent to saving 315 trees, 77,000 kilowatt hours of energy and 61 cubic yards of landfill space.

The holiday break is a great opportunity to continue these efforts. Before leaving the office, do your part to help conserve energy.

  • Turn off computers, monitors, speakers and printers
  • Empty, defrost and unplug mini-refrigerators
  • Unplug electronic items such as coffeemakers and microwaves
  • Close blinds and tilt upward to reduce heat loss
  • Turn off all lights and unplug task or holiday lights
