Students Generate Ideas to Make CU a Greener Campus
The University of Colorado in Boulder is already a very sustainable campus. David A. Beal takes a strong interest in green design and loves to hear about emerging and local news of green efforts being made around town and across the country. According to a recent article in the Daily Camera, students sat down to come up with new ways to make the campus even more sustainable than it already is.
CU students who are interested in being part of a group of green leaders on campus got together to brainstorm ways to boost the green efforts of the school. Some of the suggestions included ideas such as, semester-long bike rentals, reducing the use of paper towels in the bathrooms and using golf carts instead of trucks to move food across the campus.
In addition, plans for zero-waste efforts on campus were also discussed. One of the main ideas brought up to boost the zero-waste efforts of the University was scaling back on junk mail and promotional pieces. Students are flooded with promotional mail that is typically wasted, thus contributing to the issue of wasting valuable resources, such as a paper.
Seeing students so invested in creating a more sustainable atmosphere is something David A. Beal highly values. If you are interested in bringing the passion of the CU students into your home, consider a green renovation or custom home. Contact David A.
