Environmental Tips & Eco-Options will become a regular feature in upcoming editions of Insider. This week's tips focus on saving energy during the Holiday Season, compliments of Climate Change Central.
Tis the Season to Save Energy
Conserving energy is especially important during the holiday season, when power bills typically spike and the consumption mentality is at its highest. So this year as you hang decorations, stuff the turkey, partake in festivities and shop for gifts, keep energy efficiency in mind. Here are some tips to help you save energy, and cash, this holiday season.
Save as you Decorate
Save in the Kitchen
Just a reminder that GPRC is making a big delivery to the Salvation Army Food Bank on December 12th. You still have time to donate by bringing items to the bin outside of the shipping & receiving area at Campus Operations by December 11th. Our goal is 2 items per person and the most needed items are: Stuffing, Instant Potatoes, Canned Ham, Toiletries, Sugar Cubes, Margarine, Canned Vegetables.
From December 10-19, the Library will be running a ‘Food for Fines’ program for students, staff, and faculty. Should you have any outstanding fines you would like to clear up, here is your opportunity. We will accept any non-perishable food item in lieu of
payment for library fines. One food item will equal $1 in fines. Unfortunately, we cannot accept food as payment for lost book charges. All the food we collect will be donated to GPRC’s Room of Plenty. Tomorrow's edition of the Library's "Friday File" gives additional information regarding how to find out whether or not you have any fines, so be sure to check it out!
