As a student at a major university, it is important to remember that little things really do go a long way. The UF Office of Sustainability blog offers up a list of initiatives that can help curb the overall carbon footprint of an university.
• Reducing demand for printed campus and community phone directories
• Scheduled pickups of clean, glass specimen containers too large for standard campus bins
• Responsible material usage by the graphic design department and reusable event signage
• Installation of towel bars and reusable towels near high-traffic sinks
