Green Tips

Every week or so I aim to update my email signature with a new tip for how to be more environmentally sustainable. Below is a catalogue of all of my tips to date.

  1. Switch off your monitor(s) before you go home.
  2. Turn off the lights in empty rooms.
  3. Familiarise yourself with the University's recycling guidelines.
  4. Print double-sided if you can. Don't print at all if you can avoid it.
  5. Remember the waste hierarchy: Prevent, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover, Dispose.
  6. Only use recyclable wrapping paper this Christmas. This means no shiny surfaces, and strictly no glitter!
  7. As well as preventing waste, many coffee shops offer a discount if you bring your own cup.
  8. Get into the habit of switching off lights at home and bring the energy-saving mentality to work.
