The Rio Goes Green program has been developing ideas and implementing local programs that can change and will better serve present & future generations of our campus community.
Here are some of the ways in which the Go Green program has been contributing:
- Campus Recycling Program
- Energy Management Program
- Trayless Food Services (Sodexo)
- Four Day Summer Work Week
Of course we need your help in this endeavor.
Here are ways in which you can help:
Participate in recycling by properly disposing of acceptable items in the proper collections containers.
Find the nearest bins and pitch in.
Turn off lights & electronics in rooms which are unoccupied.
Energy is wasted whenever its used and no one is there to benefit.
Adjust the heating & cooling on weekends and holiday periods.
Especially, turning off computers in labs will contribute two ways: once for the electricity saved on the unused computer and secondly for saving on the cooling costs.
- Unplug chargers and electronics which have a "vampire" draw on current even when not being turned on.
Carpooling for commuters is a big savings.
