How to save the world (and money!) Presented by the Students for a Greener Berkeley
What You Can Do, Part I: Reduce Paper: –Don't print unnecessarily. –Use less napkins in the DC. –Ditto for paper towel usage. –Use “duplex” (two-sided) printing, if possible. –Use “multi-up” printing...
What You Can Do, Part I: Reduce Food: –Sample, then pig out. –Take only the utensils you need. –Conserve your shopping bag usage. Water: –Fix all leaking faucets. –Take faster showers – more time to study for this class!
Per Capita Water Usage 168 Gallons Per Day!
If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.
What You Can Do, Part I: Reduce Electricity: –Turn off the light after you leave a room. This is true for dorms, campus buildings, etc.! –Power down during vacation –Use high-compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent...
Compact Fluorescent vs. Incandescent Cost Comparison Chart 27 Watt Compact Fluorescent 100 Watt Incandescent Cost of Lamps$14.00$0.50 Lamp Life 1642.5 days (4.5 years) 167 days Annual Energy Cost$5.91$21.90 Lamps Replaced in 4.5 years 010 Total Cost$40.60$103.55 Savings Over Lamp Life $62.95$0 http://nwbuildnet.com/stores/bm/lighting/cfl.html
What You Can Do, Part I: Reduce Gasoline and Natural Gas ($$$) –Invest in blankets, close windows, turn off the heat. –Carpool. –Use public transport. –Buy a motorcycle (easy parking). –Buy a bicycle.
What You Can Do, Part II: Reuse The Re-Use Program: http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~recycle/reuse/ Below Eshlemen Hall –Used Reader/Notebook Drive –Salvaged Paper Notebooks –Salvaged Paper Collection –A whole bunch of used stuff: telephones, etc. –Their limiting resource is volunteers.
What You Can Do, Part III: Recycle Don’t throw anything away. Aluminium is the most important to recycle: –Americans throw away enough aluminium every three months to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet. –It takes 20 times more energy to make a can from virgin ore than from recycled aluminum. http://www.anchoragerecycling.com/alumfact.htm
