The UFV Green Pledge

"I pledge to take into consideration the social, ecological and economic implications of my actions."

I will reduce energy . . .

  • Turn off the lights when I am the last to leave the room.
  • Close windows and blinds to keep the heat in or out when I am the last to leave a room.
  • Turn off my monitor when I leave the computer lab or my personal computer.
  • Turn off my personal computer when not in use.
  • Turn off personal printers at the end of the day.
  • Avoid using personal electric heaters.

I will travel responsibly  . . .

  • Walk, ride, take public transit or carpool to school.

I will reduce waste and recycle more . . .

  • Use recycling receptacles on campus.
  • Avoid disposables and use reusable containers, mugs and water bottles.
  • Think before I print and print double sided.
  • Use recycled bags instead of new plastic bags.
  • Purchase locally grown produce.
  • Pack a litter free lunch. 

I will think of other ways to re-think, reduce, re-use and recycle, act on them and encourage others to do the same.
