OSU’s Tulsa Campuses Launch Paper Recycling Campaign on Earth Day

Earth DayStudents, faculty and staff from OSU’s Tulsa campuses gathered this morning to kick off a paper recycling campaign on Earth Day. President Howard Barnett and Energy Education Manager Angelyn Holmes (pictured above) described the benefits of the program.

“Recycling is the next major goal in our commitment to sustainability,” Barnett said. “We’ve made a lot of progress with our energy conservation efforts and now we’re taking the next important step. With this new program, everyone on OSU’s Tulsa campuses can do their part to help us drastically reduce the amount of paper we send to area landfills.”

The paper recycling program is the second phase of OSU’s conservation efforts. In 2007, OSU-Tulsa launched an energy conservation program that has saved $393,190 in energy costs from January 2008 to January 2010, representing a 22.8 percent savings.
