The Registrar’s Office has decided to promote Earth Day 2019 (which fell on Monday, April 22ndthis year) as our Spring Lasallian service project. To that end, we invite you to give us feedback on what YOU are doing to protect our planet’s environment. We will share your input with the Manhattan College community to increase awareness of our community’s “green” efforts. All of these actions show respect for our Earth and the people who live on it as well as our concern for social justice and our collective future.
Here is a small sample of what Registrar staff are doing:
Recycle cans and bottles
Use reusable water bottles or mugs instead of disposable plastic bottles
Turn off lights when we leave a room for an extended period
Plan personal errands in advance to avoid multiple car trips, saving both time and money while helping reduce car pollution
Replace light bulbs at home with LED light bulbs to save both energy and money
Turn off printers, scanners and computers when not in use
Do not print most emails “think before you print”
Adjust computer settings to go into “sleep mode” after 10 minutes of no activity
So now, what areYOUdoing to celebrate Earth Day 2019??
