    • Our carbon footprint by:
      • maximizing online collaboration or conference calls
      • eliminating unnecessary travel
      • clustering meetings on campus
      • turning off lights and computer monitors
      • taking the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Repair equipment instead of buying new
  • Reuse packaging materials, binders, and other business supplies whenever possible
  • Recycle printer cartridges, cardboard boxes, batteries, paper, glass, plastic, and metal
