Tips on how to reduce the amount of energy we use in our daily lives whether at home, work, or school.
Take Action: Bronco Athletes
In the Malley Fitness & Recreation Center, users will find an infographic series titled “The Sustainability Bronco Athlete.” These signs aim to inform all athletes on ways they can incorporate sustainability into their athletic lifestyle. Below are examples of some of the signs that frequent Malley often.
Whether one is an athlete, fitness lover, or occasion gym goer, an individual or group's carbon footprint can be reduced by walking and biking whenever possible. And if the destination is farther than anticipated, there's always the option of public transportation or carpooling.
Any kind of sport or outdoor activity requires hydration. Reuse a water bottle and fill up at the many water bottle filling stations across campus. Additionally, harnessing the natural energy from the sun to air dry clothes is another unconventional idea of reuse.
After a long day of practice or a tough work-out, athletes need to ice their muscles. Once the ice has been poured onto a nearby plant or used for some other similar purpose, these ice bags can and should be recycled.
Last, but not least, respect your body and fuel it with wholesome food. To help maintain a consistent intake of veggies this summer, subscribe to a Community-Supported Agriculture produce box this summer. Weekly boxes (full box for $25, feeds 4, or half box for $15, feeds 2) are delivered to campus from a local, organic farm. To learn more, visit the CSA Produce Subscription page.
