Green Team asks for your participation in a campaign to reduce energy and heating consumption this month
From the Green Team
College students around Minnesota will pull the plug on excessive energy consumption, literally. In a statewide competition called Campus Wars, 15 schools, including the University of St. Thomas and University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, will battle throughout February to see which school can save the most energy.
The St. Thomas Green Team will sponsor several events this month. Check Bulletin Today on Mondays to read about events each week.
This week’s events include:
Events in the weeks to follow include a movie night and a chili cook-off.
Energy saving tip of the week:
Eighty-six percent of the energy consumed by a washing machine goes into heating the water. To save energy – and to keep your white underclothing from turning pink – use cold water to wash your clothes.
